A development programme for emerging and established theatre artists
Originally founded to take positive action to develop British South Asian theatre artists, its focus has since moved to champion and nurture voices and stories from all cultures – cultures that are otherwise left in the shadows.
Running for nearly 20 years, Developing Artists is a core part of Tamasha’s year-round programme. Over the years it has become an essential part of the British theatre ecology, launching numerous careers. Tamasha is widely recognised as a leading hub for exciting new talent, with many companies reaching out to us to find actors, writers, directors, producers and designers that they could not source elsewhere.
Facilitated by leading industry experts, our popular Tamasha workshops consist of topics ranging from writing, producing, directing and acting to lighting, design and sound.
A year-long pilot, led by Sita Thomas, focused on the professional and artistic development of Directors from the Global Majority, who are at the beginning to mid-stages of their career, and who demonstrate exceptional promise.
