Our theatre building may be closed, but we are still open - to keep the conversation going we're launching REPurposed…
REPurposed is our brand new series of conversations, insights and masterclasses. It's a chance for artists, creators and audiences across Birmingham, the wider region and nationally, to exchange ideas, be present, discover new skills, ask questions, provide answers, find out more about The REP or take a moment to chat about what matters to you.
These free, open conversations will be hosted on Zoom with our Artistic Director Sean Foley, Deputy Artistic Director Amit Sharma and Associate Director Madeleine Kludje - plus from time to time some of our new Associate Artists.
Our Associate Artists include: Lorna Laidlaw, Mohammed Ali, Debbie Isitt, Iqbal Khan, Lolita Chakrabarti, Drew McOnie, Pippa Aillion, Tyrone Huggins, Meera Syal, Richard Thomas, Selina Thompson, Paul Hunter and Tanika Gupta.
Taking place each Tuesday between 6pm-7pm, each week will focus on a different theme, so feel free to sign up to as many as you want.
You're part of the story.
