In March 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, NMC suspended artistic activity that required presence in the studio or theatre. After nearly four years of research, our premiere of Project XO at Sadler’s Wells, the run of 24 public performances, Talks and tour have been put onhold.
We continued to create and share our work remotely during this challenging time with programmes including ‘Replay’ – an online streaming of four NMC full length productions, creation of the 10 x 10 film celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Collective, new user- friendly website and our research into the remote version of Project XO. This new development would enable audiences that cannot attend a physical venue to engage with our interactive experience by navigating the suit and interacting with live performers from home.
We have been pushing artistic boundaries for over ten years, however it has never been a more challenging time to be a daring creative organisation. That’s why we need support from forward-thinking individuals who believe in our innovative work and the potential of the arts to transform lives.
