We are delighted to announce that we have selected Tanoa Sasraku-Ansah from 207 applicants as our next artist-in-residence (May - Sep 2019). Tanoa will be examining the historical presentation of Blackness in costume through characters such as Pierrot the clown, particularly ruminating on “ the role that all-black theatre companies played in “re-branding” the post-slavery, black human”. We were particularly impressed with how Tanoa’s research area will offer a critical assessment of the role of costume within wider society, and how that impacts on the understanding of identity.

Thank you to all of our applicants - we were spoilt for choice!
