Current Projects

Two Newcastles

Two Newcastles is a co production between Curious Monkey theatre company, Newcastle UK and Newcastle Arts Development Organisation from KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.  It’s a flagship cultural project forNewcastles of the World, an alliance of all of the places in the world that share the name Newcastle. The project is supported by International Newcastle. Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa
We’ve had a wonderful few days of rehearsals, full of rich ideas, new songs and an epic narrative that we are beginning to create. We want to tell a universal story of someone who goes from one world to another, who experiences that new world, it’s ups, it’s downs, and then goes home again, fuller. We are two groups from opposites sides of the world that share a name, and finding a way to encapsulate that in a story is a mammoth task. It feels like we are edging closer. But it’s not easy. Even the ways in which we create are completely different. We are on their territory so I find myself listening and following their way and feel hesitant to input at times. I wonder if they felt the same when visiting us last year?
The artists met at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown South Africa 2015 where Curious Monkey were running the Remix Laboratory in partnership with the Swallows Foundation UK. After a brilliant 10 days working together, the artists knew they wanted to take their collaborating further. In 2016 artists from NADO visited North East England to work with the UK cast on research and development for the new show. The UK artists visited South Africa in early 2018 to continue the exchange, after running workshops in schools and in hospitals to gather stories and share songs about what it means to live or be from the northeast of England. The show will then tour in the northeast and in South Africa in summer 2018. For more information seehttp://curiousmonkeytheatre.com/blog/portfolio/two-newcastles/
