SPARK | Performance Lab | R&D
Pegasus specialises in the support and incubation of new and emerging companies and artists – a seedbed for new talent.
Pegasus takes a particular interest in artists and work that is not represented within existing ‘mainstream’ provision. We promote work that pushes the boundaries of theatrical practice from a diverse community of artists and cultures with & for young audiences. We support the development of young emerging and developing artists and companies, providing opportunities for training, creative and artistic expression. This support has helped launch the careers of individuals and companies that have gone on to influence the British and international theatre scene (eg: Complicite, The Right Size, Peepolykus & Tavaziva).
Pegasus is also a pioneer, a leader in the field of participatory arts, creating opportunities for young people to work alongside professional artists with an inclusive approach. We have a track record for delivering high quality, accessible and inspiring activities that encourage people to take part in the arts.
The Pegasus supported artist programme for new and emerging artists & companies provides the space and skills development needed to turn their ideas into reality.
The year long programme will provide bespoke support for artists based on their individual needs.
