On Tour uses professional actors, designers, writers and directors to develop original theatre for schools, and builds on the success of our produced work by targeting and increasing the range and number of performances. In addition to the work we have originated for secondary school touring (No Ball Games), and the Youth Perform project we will devise and develop a new primary school tour and further performances in secondary schools. The aim is to establish our School and Community Touring activity as a regular feature in the programme of activity in Suffolk schools, and to work with Partner Schools to develop new work that directly meets their needs.
In The Community
On Tour builds on the success of our produced work (Fragmenting, Taken Leave, Springboard, and Write Now) by focusing and developing the range and number of performances in the community. We will refine the current offer of work developed or originated for the Pulse Festival, various community performances and projects with local writers to a responsive and targeted programme of productions, interactions and site-specific performances of work that reflect the needs and changing aspirations of the constituents in our community and engages with people who have come to believe that theatre does not represent them or their values.
