‘A fantastic experience. Learning how to make the dream real was a great thing for me.’
Participant, Periplum Springhead residency
Periplum deliver residencies for theatre & arts practitioners, community groups and educational partners, working together in unique locations or visiting the host organisation. Residencies can focus purely on provoking the imagination and expanding creative practice or contribute to professional or personal development.
We encourage a safe & playful arena to explore alternative ways of creating innovative new work, from site-specific to digital-led. We promote experiment, invention & adventure, helping participants develop and refresh devising and staging skills and achieve an expanded insight into the possibilities of performance – making the most of the potential of a location.
In universities we have helped create links within and across departments through special projects.
Creative Residency into Performance
Our residencies often lead to exciting public performances. The project can take place in the location of the host organisation or at a specially identified site, drawing inspiration from and animating the space. Periplum have delivered residencies & performances in sites including the Olympic Park, the British Museum, churches, parks, hotels, the streets, an abandoned coffee plantation, and waterside locations. With minimal production resources Periplum can guide, support & direct an intensive creation process to a challenging & rewarding performance.
