We are Barbican Theatre: supporting Plymouth’s own creative voice and giving them platforms to be heard!
Barbican Theatre, Plymouth is an NPO & a regional centre of excellence for young & emerging creatives. It’s been a community catalyst & cultural hub at the heart of the historic Barbican, Plymouth for more than 40 years.
We want the world to meet the next generation of creative leaders that we get to work with every day and through our support help them build sustainable creative careers.
We specialise in co-creation and are a commissioning house that occupies a key role in the cultural life of the city investing in the Plymouth ecology. We work extensively with our partners across the city and have been identified as cultural producers for the city.
You can get involved in so many ways; not just as a class participant or an audience member. You could be a technician, a producer, choreographer, director, writer, composer, designer or interested in arts marketing.
There are so many opportunities and experiences we want to help emerging talent explore and engage with so that together we can create work that inspires, challenges, entertains and educates.
We went to a fantastic evening performance in a great location. Highly recommended. I wish I’d discovered it long ago.
Intimate, innovative theatre experience, ideal location and atmosphere.
“The Barbican has been a huge part of our development, not just through audiences but both professional development. We have learnt countless skills that have set us up to tackle the challenges we face in the arts”
Lovely intimate venue… which allowed the artists to really interact with you
“Having support from the Barbican gave Beyond Face status as a company that should be taken seriously and gave us confidence that our work was and is of quality and deserves to be out there”
So pleased I’ve discovered this place, it’s a great venue in a great location.
