  • Home Run

    Home Run is our largest-scale commissioning scheme.

    "Home Run transformed how we work. It allowed us to make an ambitious show (5 cast members and a large set) and to lever funding to support the company financially, leading to our producer becoming full-time and sustaining the company with a robust business plan.” Milk Presents

    Home Run supports artists with a £5,000 cash commission and free rehearsal space – as well as artistic, fundraising, marketing and business planning support – to develop a project from work-in-progress to three-week run of a fully realised production. Which is then shown as a prominent part of our artistic programme.

    Made possible thanks to the generous support of Jerwood Arts and Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Home Run is designed to support early-career artists making the difficult transition from work-in-progress to a substantial run of a full production.

    Home Run commissions - the story so far:

    Bullish by Milk Presents, which headlined our ‘Come As You Are’ festival in Sept 2017 – then our touring version of that festival in autumn 2018.

    So Many Reasons by Racheal Ofori and Fuel, which headlined our ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival in January 2018.

    Gwei Mui / Ghost Girl 鬼妹 by Jennifer Tang, presented in partnership with Chinese Arts Now in January 2019.

    The Elephant in the Room by Lanre Malaolu, presented at CPT in April 2019 as part of a season of work exploring mental health and wellbeing.

    Trigger Warning by Eurotrash (Natasha Nixon and Marcelo dos Santos), headlined our ‘Handle with Care’ festival in October 2019.

    TRIGGER WARNING

    Tue 22 Oct - Sat 9 Nov2019
    Absurd, comic and dangerous, Trigger Warning fuses movement, text and lipsync to push 'content warnings' to their breaking point (and beyond). Created by Marcelo Dos Santos and Natasha Nixon.

    "The seed commission has made me feel supported, not just as an artist but also a woman of colour whose story needs to be heard."
