the salon:collective, producer
the salon:collective is a diverse community of artists based in London. We create theatre, train actors, develop writers and deliver corporate communications training. We create and collaborate on events and productions while offering a supportive, energising climate for artists making their own work.
Our community of artists makes the collective more than the sum of its parts, inspired by the tradition of pioneering collective companies such as the Moscow Art Theatre, the Group Theatre and Atlantic Theatre Company. All of these developed dynamic artistic practice and provided an environment in which actors, writers and directors could create fresh, bold, relevant new work.
Writer development is close to our heart. Our writer and script development programme, salon:lab, ‘caffeine for new writer’ aims to give writers what they need to get their work from page to stage or screen. We have worked with established writers such as, Sarah Rutherford, Park Theatre resident writer, Sarah Grochala, Headlong associate, and Clara Brennan, Soho Theatre resident. Park Theatre invited us to participate in their first new writing showcase, Script Accelerator. Invitations have also taken us to Hot Bed Festival, Cambridge and Bath Literature Festival.
