CALL OUT – Community Project for Paines Plough’s Roundabout Theatre

Posted by Phoebe Wall Palmer, 14th August 2017, 15:20pm

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre invite you to join them in making a brand-new theatre performance to be shown in the world-renowned Paines Plough Roundabout Theatre. Everything We Are will be an original piece of theatre – created over the course of just one month – by a unique ‘pop-up’ theatre company that you can be a part of. How the final piece comes together will be shaped by you and everyone who volunteers to form the company. By taking part in this project, you’ll attend a series of inspiring workshops, designed to get you thinking, creating and performing. The sessions will be led by theatre maker and performer, Rachel Baynton – co-artistic director of the critically acclaimed Proto-type Theater. These workshops will result in a one-off show, to be performed in the Roundabout as part of Lincoln Performing Arts Centre’s Pop-Out Festival 2017.

POP OUT Festival is on its way!

11 September – 1 October At POP OUT you can expect the best new plays, family shows, music, comedy and site-specific performance, all taking place in spaces outside of our venue. The festival is a great opportunity to uncover hidden gems and try something different. You can even experience a little slice of the Edinburgh Festival with the return of the wonderful Roundabout, Paines Plough’s touring amphitheatre, visiting Lincoln fresh from the Fringe. This year, as well popping out of our building, we are also popping up at Waterside Shopping Centre. This exciting partnership with one of city’s major retail destinations will see a three-week residency leading up to the main festival, with a programme full of performances and participatory activities suitable for the whole family.
