We recently launched a call out for artists to create four bitesize pieces of theatre, new writing and participatory arts experiences to tour community venues across South Tyneside. A panel consisting of community members selected four artists and theatre groups which are Unfolding Theatre, Kamaal Hussain, Eric MacLennan and Laura Lindow.

Food will be an integral part of each of these four performances, so you may be welcomed with Baklava or have hot bowl of lumpy tomato soup! There will be performances in community venues, scout huts and unusual settings. There will be 5 performances of each show over 5 days in different venues.

Each of the selected artists will be visiting community venues throughout South Tyneside with further workshops or conversations taking place across the wards in January and February with the final shows taking place from February to April.

For further information about the shows please contact Emma Scarr at emma.scarr@theculturalspring.org.uk.
