WE ARE DREAMERS! At DCT we dream, and we encourage you to too. Dreams lead us to ideas, that lead us to change, that lead us to action. We dream up new ideas every single term, trusting that inspiration will find us and lead the way - and it always does. We nurture artists and ideas, exchanging energies and ambitions, and that is incredibly exciting and rewarding. We are starting a new journey very soon. If you are a professional actor, join us in The Actors Club where many of our members have been for years! Come and be a part of our family! #JoinTheClub⁠

Did you know we run a scheme called Encompass? Created by our Artistic Director Heather Ward, Encompass is supported by Pleasance Theatre, Southwark Playhouse, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Park Theatre and Rose Kingston. Encompass encompasses New Ideas, Spaces, Experimentation and Work in the North, South, East and West of the London compass. We give out free rehearsal space every week to our artists to use towards the development of their projects! And so many projects have gone on to have a future life on the stage and in festivals. We are so grateful to our supporting theatres and to be able to offer this opportunity to our members. ⁠

Thank you to @swkplay @thepleasance and @parktheatrelondon for your support on our return back after lockdown last year! Some pictures of our artists rehearsing to follow!⁠

You can learn more about Encompass here: https://directorscuttheatre.co.uk/encompass/⁠

If you're a #writer who procrastinates.... perhaps try joining a group where you have deadlines and opportunities that excite you. Like #TheWritersClub that we run. Where you work regularly with directors and professional #actors on exercises, events and shows. You'll soon find yourself looking back thinking 'Wow, I did all that'. ⁠

The power is in your hands. Take ownership of your creative path. Stay curious. Ask questions. Keep building -knowledge, networks, allies. There is always more to learn, more to see, feel and discover. Change takes action. Take a moment to ask yourself... what needs to be done? What can you do today, that can change your tomorrow?⁠

Take action on your dreams and take those steps forward to fuelling your creative desires. Inspiration is infectious. That's why we love building a community with inspiration at its core with people open to throwing themselves in and trying new things. Courage and creativity go hand in hand, and at DCT you'll get so much opportunity to practice those two things, in a supportive family of others doing the same. In #TheWritersClub we give our #writers many exercises they wouldn't have thought possible before they joined, and before they know it they are diving in again and again with confidence! Join us and find yourself inspired and stretched in new ways! https://directorscuttheatre.co.uk/the-clubs/about-the-writers-club/⁠

Our #directors putting their heads together at our last tech day @swkplay for our show Art from the Heart! We are always so impressed by how supportive and incredible the members of #TheDirectorsClub are. Always coming together to work as a team, chipping in when someone needs help, thinking ahead and solving problems before they have arisen and doing their best to get the show on as smoothly as possible! It's a fantastic way to gain insight into how other directors operate too, picking up tips from each other, assisting and developing your directors toolset! We're open for new members to start with us soon so don't miss this great opportunity to join the club and check out all the details on membership here! https://directorscuttheatre.co.uk/the-clubs/about-the-directors-club/⁠

One of the most exciting things about being an actor is that with every workshop, show, event and new job you meet new people, and experience new things. You never know when you'll meet someone who will be a real game changer for you. But in order for that to happen, you've got to make the moves to open the doors for yourself first! By joining our community you will find doors swinging open everywhere, you'll find yourself immersed in a network of exceptional talent, loaded with opportunities for collaboration and work. Take our members words for it! #JoinTheClub Want to join us?
