  • Outside The Box

    Our Outside the Box commission encourages artists to challenge and blur the lines of 'live performance'.

    Launched under Covid lockdown, our Outside the Box commission invited artists to develop larger-scale projects – live, virtual or both – which explored what ‘live performance’ could be at a time of closed theatres. CPT also sought out projects that communicated meaningfully – and promised exciting cultural encounters – with its local communities, themselves isolated in many cases by the pandemic. The commissions supported R&D towards a digital or live sharing in autumn 2020 or spring 2021. The judging panel comprised members of CPT’s local community and artists from marginalised backgrounds alongside members of the CPT team.

    Our 2021 Outside the Box commissioned artists were: Adam Welsh, Anna Morrissey & Tristan Kajanus, Pigfoot and John Akinde. See below for more information about the selected artists and their projects. The judging panel comprised members of CPT’s local community and artists from marginalised backgrounds alongside members of the CPT team.

    A call-out for a new Outside the Box commission will be issued in spring 2022.

    No Future

    Inspired by conversations with CPT’s local communities, no future is a multi-dimensional project that bridges film, theatre and installation. It is about vision, restoring order, and the past coming to meet you.
