In early February I was selected to produce the International Festival of New Work at East 15 Acting School opening November 2017, I am very excited to be leading the ensemble of the Class of 2018 and I have laid out my vision for the festival, with two wonderful associate producers, Heidi Nielsen and Eva Ditzelmuller.
Below is a preview of one of our most important assets, the new website (in mobile form), that will be available at e15international.com when it opens to the public.
I am working with WordPress’ Shoreditch Theme to create a clean, functional website to showcase the course, its graduates and make booking tickets for shows easy and attractive to web visitors.
The team of almost 20 students has been divided into INT (Internal) Operations and EXT (External) Operations with different teams within those groups working on Scheduling, Content creation and festival objectives, Marketing and Talent Development.
We work in close cooperation with East 15 and the University of Essex and have also created a partnership with the Embassy of Croatia in the UK, who will be supporting our festival – we are most thankful for that.
We have also guaranteed the festival be entirely free to reach out to the local and greater community in the area and hope to extend invitations to schools in the surrounding area for free matinee preview shows.
I am also still at the Arcola Theatre performing in Richard III – the entire cast is teaching me so much, every day. A very good spring.
Adieu for now.
