Black Theatre Live


Black Theatre Live is a pioneering national consortium of 8 regional theatres led by Tara Arts, committed to effecting change nationally for Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic touring theatre through a sustainable 3-year programme of national touring, structural support and audience development.

Black Theatre Live is a partnership of Tara Arts (London), Derby Theatre, Queen's Hall Arts (Hexham), the Lighthouse (Poole), Theatre Royal Bury St. Edmunds, Theatre Royal Margate, Stratford Circus Arts Centre (London) and Key Theatre (Peterborough).

Black Theatre Live expects to work with emerging and established Black & Asian companies across England to commission and tour high quality productions to the consortia theatres over the coming 3 years.

Black Theatre Live will shape a dynamic national programme of mid- and small-scale tours. Its structured audience development and community engagement programmes will include live digital streaming and cinema relay.

We are delighted to receive Arts Council England’s support to transform the national landscape of Black & Asian touring theatre in the coming years.
