About the festival


Taking place at Worcester University, this event brings together those involved in managing rural touring networks, rural touring promoters and crucially artists who, together make possible over 3000 shows each year which are seen by over 220,000 people.


New Directions 2018 will enable touring schemes, venues and voluntary promoters to sample shows, see work, share experiences with other promoters and broaden their knowledge of work available.


It is also a fabulous opportunity for companies to highlight the quality and style of their work and creates an opportunity to talk directly with touring schemes and start meaningful relationships and dialogue.


China Plate have been engaged to curate a programme of work over 3 days showcasing a range of entertaining, surprising and stimulating performance reflecting the best of contemporary theatre, performance and dance available for rural touring in 2019.


The aim is twofold:


1) to introduce delegates to high quality work by artists whose work is moving in an exciting new direction - some artists they'll know well and some they may never have met or seen before


2) to introduce the wonderful world of rural touring to some artists and companies who've never encountered or experienced it.


The call out to artists is now OPEN and bookings will open for delegates in Spring 2018.

Applications close at 5pm on 16th February 2018
