Along with millions of other creatives, we watched a whole year of work slide away, not knowing if it would return. We had to pivot but we were hugely fortunate enough to secure support from Arts Council England, to deliver a condensed remote R&D of a new show Kinder. Inspired by real life events of the Kindertransport, we explored the story of British man, Nicholas Winton who helped Czech-Jewish children flee Prague before the outbreak of the Second World War.
In July 2020, we engaged our freelance Producer, Sofia Stephanou. This is the first time we have worked with a producer and it felt like a big step forward, in terms of streamlining our working processes as a company.
Summer 2020 saw us sneak in a small handful of Arbor shows, performing with the brilliant Little Angel Theatre and Marlowe Theatre. It was a true joy to get back to what we do best and share this with our wonderful audiences.
Spectrum Youth Theatre sessions moved online and we were joined by many more young people, from much further afield than London.
