Bridging the Gap 2017 is live!

Wed 01 Feb The Maltings is delighted to continue its relationship with 9 other North East/Yorkshire based theatres for the return of Bridging the Gap in 2017/18. It’s always exciting to see the interesting and innovative work that the talent base from our region delivers, and we’re proud to continue our support of new and promising companies. For 2017/18 it would be particularly exciting to see companies based locally to The Maltings apply to the process.” – Daniel Cox, Programming Associate

Bridging the Gap is a project developed by ARC, originally in conjunction with Newcastle Theatre Royal and The Maltings, designed to contribute towards the creation of new theatre work within the North East region.
The venues worked together to offer a joint package of in-kind support to enable North East based artists/theatre companies to develop and present new pieces of work across the venues. Over the years the scheme expanded to include other North East venues.

To date Bridging the Gap has supported:
- Rabbit Damage: Wherever I Lay My Hat (2010)
- INK Productions: Wanting for Anghus (2011)
- Daniel Bye: Ash or How to Occupy an Oil Rig (2012)
- Black Coffee Theatre: Found (2013)
- Amy Mackelden: Retail (2013)
- Encounter Productions: Choir (2014)
- Northern Nomads: Butterfly (2014)
- Camisado Club: You, Me and Everything Else (2015)
- Zoe Murtagh: The Lamppost Petition (2016)
- The Six Twenty: FANS (2016)

The scheme is managed by ARC Stockton and now includes Arts Centre Washington, Gala Theatre, Live Theatre, Northern Stage, Sunderland MACQ, The Maltings in Berwick, York Theatre Royal and The Witham in Barnard Castle.

New for 2017/2018
This year we are opening the scheme up to artists and companies based in Yorkshire as well as the North East region (as defined by Arts Council England), and are delighted to welcome York Theatre Royal as a new partner.

Also, for 2017-18 we will be offering support for an extended development period, followed by the opportunity to present work in September 2018. We will be supporting two artists/companies across two strands of the programme:

- Scheme A: ARC Stockton, Arts Centre Washington, Gala Theatre, Northern Stage and York Theatre Royal
- Scheme B: ARC Stockton, Live Theatre, Sunderland MACQ, The Maltings and The Witham

We are now seeking emerging professional companies or artists, with experience of producing at least one show, to benefit from these packages in 2017-18.

Closing date for applications is 10am, Mon 27 Feb 2017.
