News & Articles
Since the creation of our Curve Young Company (CYC) in 2012, we've seen thousands of incredibly talented young people from across Leicester and Leicestershire engage with the joy of live theatre. Developing their inter-personal skills, growing in confidence, solving complex challenges, team working and making friends for life, nothing beats the feeling of being part of a youth theatre.
With our building temporarily closed, we all miss welcoming CYC members to their home at Curve and every performer remains in our thoughts. Whilst we can't wait to see CYC back in our theatre, we are enjoying watching recordings of some fantastic past performances from the groups.
Photographer Ellie Kurttz talks about using reflections to capture a moment in our 2019 Made at Curve production of Hanif Kureishi's My Beautiful Laundrette.
In collaboration with award-winning Leicester performance poet and Curve Breakthrough Artist Jess Green, we’re looking for people from Leicester and Leicestershire to participate in a new digital project from your home.

In this episode of Curve in Conversation, Nikolai Foster speaks to Cathy Tyson (The Importance of Being Earnest, My Beautiful Laundrette, Band of Gold) about the experiences in her youth which shaped her career as a performer, the people who inspired and enabled her to act and finding a home at her local theatre the Liverpool Everyman.
Riaz Khan, whose book Memoirs of An Asian Football Casual inspired our Curve Associate Artist Dougal Irvine to pen an adaptation for the stage, reflects on being part of the production and seeing his story performed by actors Jay Varsani and Hareet Deol.
Paul Kerryson, Director of the 2013 Made at Curve production of Chicago, discusses crafting the look of the production and putting a new spin on a classic show.
We are committed to ensuring the long-term survival of our theatre for everyone in our community and beyond and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Curve to create and share memories for many years to come.
