Weaponising Our Optimism – April 2020 Update

We wanted to check in and let you know that we are thinking of you, our audience and our friends.

While our immediate focus has been to support our staff and the many artists that have been impacted by the hibernation of our programming that the heartbeat of our amazing organisation is still pounding. We are embracing the unknown and wish to combat these unusual circumstances with ideas and determination, we are weaponising our optimism and planning radical opportunities and most importantly caring deeply for the people that are Theatre Works, our artists.

We are resisting creating noise in the online arena just for the sake of validating our existence, instead, we are taking this opportunity to build a stronger and more stable organisation for when we break from our hibernation to welcome the actors, creatives, techies, and stage managers back to our stage – where they belong.

Making theatre is a radical act of hope. A radical act shared by a group of artists and audience. A shared heartbeat and a shared experience. For the safety of everyone that shared experience can’t happen right now, but the shared hope still can – over the coming months our theatre will be dark, but our artists continue to evolve and together we look to the future.

With love from the Theatre Works team.
