A Home For Theatre Companies

New Diorama is the first ever companies’ theatre: a theatre exclusively dedicated to the development of theatre ensembles.

Working with the best groups from all over the UK, New Diorama help grow both the artistic and the organisational side of each group we work with. 

When we opened in 2010 we wanted to find ways of overcoming the many challenges and hurdles early-career theatre companies face. When we launched our Artist Development Programme back in early 2016, we were overwhelmed by the response it garnered. Since then, we have listened to artists, learnt how to improve our offer, and have worked hard to find new ways to support our artists in tangible and meaningful ways.

The result of this is our most ambitious Artist Development Programme to date, which aims to tackle these issues head on, finding new solutions to old problems and presenting completely new ideas and partnerships that we’re proud to be pioneering for the first time.

This programme was launched in August 2018. We are continuously working to improve the programme and next time significant revisions are made we will publish another programme. 

New Diorama Theatre's 2018/19 Artist Development Programme is supported by Arts Council England and sponsored by the Mandy Network.
