There are three strands to Cast’s strategy for developing and nurturing professional creative talent.
Space - Research and Development
Our building is open as a creative centre for artists to develop and create new work. We support a range of residencies throughout the year, available to not-for-profit practitioners working in the performing arts at all career stages. We have 2 purpose built rehearsal rooms here at cast. Our Dance space is a double height, sprung flat floor studio, it has a capacity of approximately 80 people for viewing performance. The studio features mirrors across one wall and dance barres are installed. Our Drama Space is furnished with the latest sound and lighting equipment, Its intimate, black box design is both flexible and spacious for break-out activity or movement.
For any R&D/rehearsal space please get in touch with Associate Producer firstname.lastname@example.org
Production Support is open to artists looking to realise projects and productions that will be premiered or seen at Cast. As part of a developing relationship with Cast, artists can benefit from a range of existing in-house resources through a programme of bespoke support.
Associate Artists are fixed-term relationships (of between 1-5 years) with Cast which can include production support, extended opportunities for R&D, brand endorsement, advocacy, access to mentoring and advice from Cast staff and assistance with strategic planning or company development.
Cast is committed to supporting creativity. If you’d like to start a relationship with Cast or find out more about our Talent Development opportunities, get in touch: Associate Producer Rosie Clark at email@example.com or call 01302 303 950.
