Package Holiday Performance

Friday 21 July 2017

Take a chance on something unknown!

We’ve offered one lucky company the chance to retreat to the Nottinghamshire countryside and develop their show at The HopBarn and then perform it at Departure Lounge. This opportunity is specifically for artists of colour in recognition of the fact that these artists are currently underrepresented in contemporary theatre and Derby Theatre’s ambition to address this imbalance. The winning artist will have undergone a competitive application and interview process, so join us to see the fruits of their labour!

The HopBarn

The HopBarn provides a unique venue for music and the performing arts. Situated on a working farm in rural Nottinghamshire, The HopBarn is a redevelopment of a group of 18th Century agricultural buildings into a purpose developed centre for music, theatre and dance. Working with regional partners, companies and artists, The HopBarn seeks to create opportunities in supporting and nurturing new and emerging artistic practice.
