Quarantine appointed as HOME’s first Associate Company
Posted: 6 August 2015
Quarantine have been appointed Associate Company at HOME, Manchester’s international centre for contemporary theatre, film and visual art.
“We’re delighted to be appointed as HOME’s first Associate Company” says Quarantine’s Richard Gregory, “Quarantine have been making work in Manchester for almost 20 years and it’s an exciting place to be an artist right now. We’re living through times of great challenge and rapid change. Theatre’s role in society is – rightly – both open to question and full of potential.”
“HOME represents a new platform for world-class art in the city and as HOME’s first Associate Company, we look forward to working with them and helping to respond to this moment with ambitious new ideas, keeping our feet on the ground in this city and our eyes on the world.”
“Manchester has a thriving home-grown theatre scene,” says Walter Meierjohann, HOME’s Artistic Director: Theatre, “and this partnership with such a well renowned Manchester theatre company underlines our commitment to working with, and being part of, that scene. Quarantine’s work has always impressed me with its vision and scope, and the partnership offers our audiences the chance to see one of the city’s leading theatre companies on our stage.”
As part of our partnership with HOME, Quarantine are currently developing Wallflower in HOME’s purpose-built rehearsal space.
Wallflower will be tested out with an invited audience at HOME on 20 – 22 August, a week before its world premiere at the Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival, Groningen, Holland (28 – 30 August 2015).
Wallflower then tours to Dublin Theatre Festival (24 – 26 September 2015).
Invitations for the Wallflower try-out performances at HOME will be sent out via our mailing list this week. (See foot of page to sign up to Quarantine’s newsletter)
