Description

CPT’s mission statement is “to support early-career artists making unconventional theatre – particularly those whose work explores issues that matter to people now”. We’re interested in anyone – particularly early-career artists – making theatre in genuinely new ways, even more so if their work has social, cultural or political pertinence to the world in 2019. Since 1997, CPT has programmed the annual Sprint festival, London’s biggest and best festival of new and unusual theatre. Since 2011, it has run the unique artist development/peer network programme Starting Blocks. We have an excellent reputation for supporting young and emerging artists in the field of unconventional theatre, and for attracting a consistently young audience (67% of CPT’s attenders are under 34).

History

CPT has been making theatre in Camden for 25 years, working with a range of extraordinary artists. Many have gone on to establish highly successful and influential theatre careers in the UK and beyond. Examples include: Fevered Sleep, the Pacitti Company, Ridiculusmus, Shunt, Analogue, Made In China, Scottee, Nouveau Riche – and many more. CPT was founded in 1994 by a collective of artists that included Sheridan Bramwell, Shaun Glanville, Lynne Kendrick and others. It occupied what was once the Palmerston pub on Hampstead Road, and focused on making non-text-based theatre productions at affordable prices and with an international flavour, alongside workshops and classes in the local community. In the intervening years, directors of CPT have included Olivia Jacobs, Chris Goode and Matt Ball.
