Here at East Midlands Theatre.com we pride ourselves in actively promoting the best in theatre and entertainment throughout the culturally diverse East Midlands region. We do this through providing exciting news items and interviews to really encourage dance and theatre going and we especially love to promote new theatre writing. We also love to highlight creative workshops and primarily offer regular reviews of all the major shows and theatre events at venues big and small. Another important arm (and legs) for us is to promote professional dance via DanceXchange and Dance Consortium and we are looking forward to experiencing the phenomenal dance ballet work of Nederlands Dans Theater 2 in 2016. We review independently and also support The Reviews Hub and the Nottingham Post newspaper in a reviewing capacity.
So far we have concentrated on the major theatres in the cities of Derby, Leicester and Nottingham namely Derby Theatre, Curve Leicester and Nottingham Playhouse and Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall. From the current EMT website and from Phil Lowe’s former theatre writing blog we have established great links with their various PR sections and artistic directors over our total four years in operation. These valuable connections have led to various in depth interviews and features being written by Phil Lowe and published in the respected amateur theatre quarterly magazine Sardines.
EMT promotes a cross section of theatres like Derby Theatre that offer learning opportunities and Plus One chances for under privileged youth to experience creative events. We enjoy promoting those like Curve who include great cultural diversity in their work and Nottingham Playhouse for their brave, sometimes contraversial and inclusive programming. Last but not least, we have an active engagement with Nottingham Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall through reviewing their regular programme of touring theatre events, dramatic and musical, and community shows including the very popular local amateur operatic scene.
EMT owner Phil Lowe looks forward to extending the reach of www.eastmidlandstheatre.com in 2016 to include more from our richly talented theatre makers across the region because he truly believes that #culturematters and that creative growth and talent should be encouraged to the benefit and education of all.
Merry Christmas from us at EMT and a Happy and Creative New Year to all our readers.
