New Fangled Stages will work with communities in which it is based offering educational and training opportunities to young people through a programme of complementary seminars in each area they play.
“What we know is who we are. What we learn is who we can be.”
As the craft of acting never stops evolving, life never stops teaching.
The company of NFS has accumulated over a century of teaching experience at various institutions and theatre companies. We believe in creating opportunities for our audiences to dialogue with us and share in what we have gleaned from our lives.
As Trashman's Dilemma's cautionary tale belongs to no one country, so NFS believes education has no political boundaries. With Davydd Cook, an NFS Artistic Associate, we span four countries and two continents in our work. Our workshops and seminars cross borders and cultures.
