Developing companies

Az is partnering the development of a unique theatre company based in the British Bangladeshi community in East London - The Peoples Palladium.

The starting point is to use theatre and the art of acting to explore changing identities and roles.

This project started in 2007 in association with Soulfire Theatre with two twelve-week series of creative workshops led by Jonathan Chadwick that culminated in presentations.We then presented a production of Lorca's Blood Wedding in August 2008.

Az is working to strengthen the management committee, mentoring the Artistic Director and supporting the company's funding applications for more creative performance projects.
