The Strategic Touring programme funds touring work, focusing especially on areas where people have low engagement with the arts and those that rely on touring for much of their arts provision. It also seeks to extend the reach of high-quality work by broadening the range of venues presenting it, as well as well as forging stronger relationships between audiences, promoters, venues, artists and producers.
Launched in 2006, China Plate works with artists, venues, festivals and funders to develop, make and present engaging, adventurous and accessible new work. China Plate are passionate about creating adventurous and imaginative new work with popular appeal. Using theatre to engage and inspire, the company takes work into venues, village halls, schools, on to the streets and to festivals in the UK and internationally.
