We create opportunities for local community involvement in all of our projects and lead on compelling devising projects.

We recently led on two digital projects with young people in partnership with The Dukes, Lancaster & Ideas Test.

Here's a peek at what we created with young people at The Dukes:

People have opportunties to take part in our projects, or train with members of our team in a variety of ways, including:

  • Performance opportunities alongside our professional teams, such as guest performers in our production Take On Me. This involves training through rehearsals, workshops with Dante or Die associates and opportunities for mentoring from the Dante or Die teams
  • Outreach & engagment workshops alongside touring productions.
  • Community workshops & conversations form a major part of our Research & Development for new projects. Most recently this has included conversations with LGBTQ+ Support groups as part of an R&D exploring the LGBTQ+ experience in UK prisons
  • We invite members of the community of all ages to symposiums & sharings of work-in-progress. This is often targeted at groups who may have specific interest in the subject matter. Feedback sessions influence the decision-making for the project's next steps
  • We are passionate about creating opportunties for young people to gain experience in the arts, and helping them to begin their careers. We regularly host placement students through college work experience, university placement schemes or the Santander graduate programme
  • Have a look at our Work With Us page for information on available roles

We regularly run a range of site-specific theatre-making workshops & residencies, tailored to a variety of different groups from students of all ages to theatre-makers. Recently we have run week long residencies & masterclasses for Hong Kong Arts Centre and Belltable: Connect in Ireland, as well as shorter sessions for Central School of Speech & Drama, Mountview Academy & De Montfort University.
