Artists

Curve Breakthrough Companies

Breakthrough is Curve’s year-round development programme for emerging artists. We see our role as helping artists to reach their full potential by offering opportunities to make, share and explore new work and ideas, while giving critical feedback and linking artists in with our networks.

We want to help artists develop work that transforms our building, engages with our audience and inspires the way we work, think and programme.

Applications for this year’s programme are now closed. Details for future applications will be released soon.

New Work Festival

From 16 – 26 Oct this year, our New Work Festival – formerly known as Inside Out – will take over spaces around our theatre with productions and activities for all ages.

Curated by our New Work Associate Beth Shouler, the festival will both support and showcase the most dynamic and exciting talent from the Midlands. The line-up includes several performances direct from runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer, plus informal gigs, musical comedy, drama and more.
