Blue Elephant Theatre

The Blue Elephant is the venue for developing emerging artists: giving them the opportunity to succeed and fail, guiding them across the stepping stones to start what will be long and prosperous careers. After over 200 applications, interviews and meetings we can finally announce that in January 2018 we will be working with four emerging artists to develop new pieces.

Decoupage Collective - @decoupageco
Are exploring the loss of ownership of female sex workers' bodies through music and movement.

Grace Duggan - @GraceDuggan
Interrogating our cultural double standards of 'body image' as we enter a new era of how our body image effects ourselves, our class, our diversity and our outlook on others.

Monument Theatre Company - @MonumentTC
This company are developing a piece set in 1980's Brixton - a time of racial tensions, as we follow two interracial lovers.

Maeve O'Sullivan - @OoMaeve
Creating a real insight into the world of autism through her experiences with her brother, who refers to himself as 'The Dark Lord'
