New Work Development
New work development at Factory is artist-driven and artist specific. There is no formula for making new work for the stage. We commit to specificity in our development activities, providing each creator with their particular needs rather than trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
We are committed to the long-term development of relationships with artists. For Factory, it’s not about the last production, or the next production; it’s about our relationship with artists and providing a space for the creation of a body of work.
We are not solely developing texts; we are creating theatre. Therefore, we commit to engaging with all theatrical artists in new work development. Choreographers, designers, directors, and actors are all crucial to the development of works of theatre, and we will involve them as early as the process demands.
Factory will actively reach out to diverse artists and initiate relationships. We are driven by the conviction that the best way to make artists feel that their work and their voices have a space here at Factory is to create that space with open arms.
Honesty is the core of what we do. Factory will give an honest yes or no to full production or further development.
