‘This week we are BACK!

With returning members and new, we are preparing for our show back in person at @swkplay already.

This summer we’ll be bringing another ‘Art from the Heart’ to the stage. Our artists are delving into their hearts this week and creating content inspired by what being an actor, writer or director has meant to them during this last year, incorporating themes of the past, present and future into their structure and story!

All creative mediums are up for grabs! Keep your eye on this talented group of professionals who just keep smashing it!’

This term is going to be a special one - as we climb into the summer we’ll reach a crescendo as we step back on this wonderful stage at our home at Southwark Playhouse. What a feeling it’s going to be. Throughout June and July we’ll enjoy weekly online workshops, creating with people across the world and making films that will mark the end of a chapter of a time we never would have anticipated. We’ll be offering out free rehearsal space from July onwards for our artists to get back together weekly in the rehearsal room for their own projects AND we’ll find ourselves back in the rehearsal room preparing for our big entry back together in person in the theatre in August! It’s going to be beautiful, meaningful and ceremonial. Join us for this momentous time. JOIN THE CLUB and check out all the details here: https://directorscuttheatre.co.uk/the-clubs/ ...

Art from the Heart is an evening of short stories by artists, sharing their art through their heart. Funny, dark and poetic.  Stories told are based in truth, from personal experiences, to meaningful messages, questions and provocations, we share themes of our human experience; the inspiration behind all creation and story-telling.

All pieces created and shared are by members of our professional artistic community – The Directors Club, The Actors Club and The Writers Club. Produced by Director’s Cut Theatre Company – directorscuttheatre.co.uk

Digital art is created by Lazaros Pasdekis.

We are incredibly excited to announce that Director’s Cut Theatre Company (based in UK) have received funding from The Asia - Europe foundation (ASEF) to work in collaboration with @readings_in_the_shed (based in Mumbai) to produce a film inspired by distance and climate change.

6 artists in our team will be funded to collaborate and we are one of 15 chosen for the grant out of 323 applications across Asia and Europe.

6 artists from various disciplines will come together through words, paint, music and movement, to explore what it means to be apart and together at the same time, bringing in research from our cultures and communities.

From UK we have producer/director Heather Ward, actor/writer Eliza Williams and digital artist Lazaros Pasdekis. From Mumbai we have actor/director Nikhil Katara, writer Himali Kothari, and sound engineer Varun Gupta.

The ASEF aims to enable cultural professionals in Asia and Europe to participate in activities that would benefit professional development and encourage positive contributions to society.

We are very excited to be working together and will be introducing the team to you over the coming week and sharing how our project is going over the next couple of months! Here is a picture of our first introduction meeting! Such a fantastic team of artists and we cannot wait to start this journey together!
