ETT, today announces Trailer Story – a travelling outdoor performance space touring across the UK presenting national and local artistic programming and community events, finding a safe, joyous, and locally focused way to bring people together in public spaces to celebrate theatre. The project is inspired by ETT’s origins as Century Theatre, who toured the UK in a pop-up space, and will tour to Newcastle and Keswick in July and August 2021, in partnership with Northern Stage and Theatre by the Lake.
Trailer Story will present weekend-long programmes of events, performances and community happenings across the UK, beginning with a residency in Newcastle city centre 30 July – 1 August, with support from NE1 Ltd, and Crow Park in Keswick 5-8 August, with support from the National Trust. Performances will be housed in a touring truck, usually used to tour production sets around the country, but reimagined as a space for artists and audiences to meet, built with sustainability at its core and allowing for socially-distanced performances.
Newcastle 30 July – 1 August 2021
Keswick 5 – 8 August 2021
