A change of plans…

Hello wonderful people! 

Earlier this year we decided that now was the time to finally reboot our engines and come back to life. We have spent a couple of years realigning, working on other projects and preparing for our big come back, and had shows, podcasts and more ready and waiting to enthral you all this year. Then the world changed. 

As the theatre, entertainment and live industries quake in their boots, with our favourite festival – The Edinburgh Fringe Festival – cancelled, and a sudden inability to see people in person, we here at OFitD suddenly had our comeback thwarted. We could choose to wallow in our despair, buckle down the hatches and Netflix until it’s safe to come out – that would be entirely fair and on some days necessary – but we were working toward something…

This something has been in the works for years. It is our Endgame. And it is why were coming back with such a force at the beginning of this year. But I guess we’ll just have to bring it forward now…

Yes, bring it forward. 

Like the avengers dragged into revolution, we are scrapping that 5 year plan and making it a now plan. We stand for opportunity and creativity here, so that is exactly what we are doing and creating. We have some very exciting huge news coming this weekend.  But before we do that, we need you.

If you are a creator or creative who has had a show cancelled, someone who is inspired to make something, a teacher or workshop leader with courses cancelled, or someone who just needs that outlet whether it be photography, art, performing or dancing, REACH OUT TO US. We want to know who you are and what you’re doing/were planning on doing. Email us at ofitdarts@gmail.com or DM us here.

We also want to hear from you if you work with or around those in need, caring for others, or in a place that could benefit from access to the arts.

Whilst you do that, keep your peels glued to these pages. 

Artists… Assemble.

The Good, The Bad & The Mad – A NEW PODCAST

We told you we were back! We’re kick off the decade with a new podcast; The Good, The Bad & The Mad!

 

Hosted by the wonderful Meg Elys, this podcast is all about sitting with real industry professionals and talking about their journey to get to being an industry pro, and spilling the beans about the good, the bad and the mad things about their jobs.

The first episode is a lovely chat with the Shakespeare Sisters – a young female filmmaking duo from London who have independently created two films so far, with eyes on bigger and broader projects.

They have their film ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’ publicly screening on March 14th at the Prince Charles Theatre in Leicester Square in London, UK, so we are talking to them on March 6th! Keep your eyes out for links and where to listen (and watch!)!
