Headlong Origins is aimed at celebrating, supporting and diversifying our pool of artists and theatre makers across the UK, outside London.
The scheme will nurture emerging talent from all corners of the UK, as the four directors that have been chosen embark on a year long program of activity. They will work closely with Headlong's producing and creative team, receiving mentorship from the artistic team. They will join Headlong's R&D sessions, workshops and engage with rehearsal processes, as well as see work from regional theatres across the UK, whilst developing their own work and artistic vision.
The Headlong Origins Directors for 2020 - 2021 are Gitika Buttoo, Julia Head, Jack Nurse and Sita Thomas.
Headlong Origins is generously supported by Backstage Trust and Cas Donald
