Headlong Origins is aimed at celebrating, supporting and diversifying our pool of artists and theatre makers across the UK, outside London.
The scheme will nurture emerging talent from all corners of the UK, as the six directors that have been chosen embark on a packed year long program of activity. They will work closely with Headlong's producing and creative team, receiving mentorship from the Artistic Director and Associate Director. They will join Headlong's R&D sessions, workshops and engage with rehearsal processes, as well as see work from regional theatres across the UK, whilst developing their own work and artistic vision.
The Headlong Origins Directors for 2020 are Maria Crocker, Nyasha Gudo, Alix Harris, Fionnuala Kennedy, Maisie Newman and Ellie Taylor.
Recruitment for two more places on the Headlong Origins scheme will being in Spring 2020.
