Live theatre can happen anywhere
Theatreplan can assist and advise clients on repurposing spaces, pop-up theatres, adapting site specific and found spaces for live performance, and interventions in traditional theatre spaces to meet the needs of particular productions. We have experience creating spaces for performance in unusual settings and can advise you on every aspect of your project.
Theatreplan project managed the temporary alterations at the Grade I listed Theatre Royal Drury Lane for a production of ‘The Lord of The Rings’, and adapted the Hampstead Theatre for an in-the-round production of ‘Chariots of Fire’. We have delivered flexible spaces for performance in all kinds of buildings. At Royal Holloway College we transformed the Victorian Boilerhouse into a multi-function space, and at Kingston College we converted a 1960s sports hall into a flexible studio theatre for public performances and use by the performing arts department.
Our consultants have years of experience working at the UK’s leading national theatre companies, and undertaking bespoke projects, including creating a space for an immersive performance in the National Theatre’s Paintframe, and running productions at its annual ‘Watch This Space’ festival - an outdoor celebration of theatre, circus and dance, which ran for over a decade on the Southbank in London. Similarly, Ashley Pickles oversaw the build and building management of the acclaimed immersive theatre production, ‘The Drowned Man’, a co-production between Punchdrunk and the National Theatre, which was performed over four storeys of a disused GPO sorting office in Paddington.
Wherever you need to perform, Theatreplan can help you make it happen.
