The Theatre may be closed to the public, but there’s a core team beavering away prepping for future projects and still engaging audiences, artists and participants. So while we’re in lockdown, we thought there’s no better time to make contact and get together to get upskilled, create and network. And that’s where Outer Limits Online comes in. We’ve created the chance to get to know some Essex artists and what they make – each week you’re sent a work (a recorded performance, text, playscript) and a little later an invitation to a Zoom workshop hosted by Doug Rintoul (our Artistic Director) and the artists who created it. These workshops are a chance to get to know them, hear about their work, their processes, and their thoughts about performance and being a theatre-maker in Essex – and do a bit of networking.
