Masterclasses

ABOUT OUR MASTERCLASS SERIES
James Graham Masterclass
Each year we curate a series of inspiring masterclass sessions with major figures from the theatre and arts industry as part of our wider Emerging Perspectives programme. These targeted sessions provide opportunities for East Midlands theatre-makers to work in a detailed, practical way accessing a range of ground-breaking artists and companies. We create an informal, inclusive setting where participants at all career stages can benefit from new skills, insights and make new contacts. Masterclass leaders to date have included Forced EntertainmentTim CrouchDavid Rudkin , Alan LyddiardJames Graham,  Inua Ellams, Lyndsey Turner, Slung Low's Alan Lane and and most recently with Earthfall Dance. The donations we receive from participants support the cost of these subsidised opportunities we offer to emerging artists.

All our Masterclass sessions take place at New Perspectives' home base: 8 Park Lane Business Park, Park Lane, Basford, Nottingham NG6 0DW. We have parking onsite either directly in front of our unit or directly behind. If travelling by train you can take a tram from the Station (end destination Hucknall) alighting at the David Lane stop. The Business Park is a 15 minute walk. Please note, you must purchase a ticket before boarding a tram. Alternatively we are a 5 minute walk from the No.17  Gorse Court bus stop on Hucknall Road. A minimum donation of £16 to New Perspectives is required to book on to this Masterclass.

Welcome

New Perspectives is an East Midlands based national touring theatre company, specialising in creating dynamic performances for rural audiences. We make ambitious and original theatre, focusing on new writing, adaptations and revivals, which we present in community settings and venues nationally and internationally. We provide career defining training and mentoring opportunities for emerging regional talent and manage the rural touring scheme Northants Touring Arts . 

EXCITE, CHALLENGE & ENGAGE
One of the many things we do is to turn village halls into professional theatre spaces.
