Emerging Perspectives Company


A Fortunate Man  - a new theatre project for emerging artists working with Michael Pinchbeck and Julian Hughes

We are looking for emerging artists from across the East Midlands to create a new theatre piece inspired by the John Berger book, A Fortunate Man. In A Fortunate Man writer John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr document the work of John Sassall, an English country doctor. In its 50th anniversary year we want to explore the parallels between the original book and the NHS today. We are looking for visual artists (i.e. photographers, painters, filmmakers etc.) to pair with writers/devisers/performers. Each pair will then explore the NHS today, spending time in doctor's surgeries. The project will be directed by Michael Pinchbeck and photographer Julian Hughes, who will work with the emerging artists to create this exciting new piece of theatre. The project will run from April to September 2017.

*  Working with the East Midlands leading touring theatre company 

* The opportunity to work with and receive support from professional East Midlands artists

* A masterclass with a leading industry professional

* The opportunity to create a produced piece of touring theatre

Participants must be 18+ and living, working or studying in the East Midlands.
