At the heart of all Theatre Delicatessen’s work is the commitment to support new and emerging theatre artists by providing space for them to develop ideas, creating opportunities for them to share new work and through offering advice, mentoring and assistance in realising their productions.
Alongside young artists, Theatre Delicatessen aims to help those people who are looking to change direction later in life, and are looking to pursue their artistic vocation.
The long-term strategy to achieve this is to position Theatre Delicatessen as the natural home for young and emerging artists creating theatre in non-traditional forms. Over the last 18-months Theatre Delicatessen has been working with a number of young artists with the aim of supporting their growth through our associate artist programme.
Through involving these companies and artists in the management of the pop-up venue at 35 Marylebone High Street and through Theatre Delicatessen’s productions, we have provided the companies and artists with wider experience of financial management, fundraising and marketing, whilst enabling them to use our spaces and facilities to develop their own artistic practice.
The Lab Collective creates theatre which transcends traditional forms to produce visceral and intimate experiences. Treading the line between theatre, installation and art, The Lab Collective empower the audience to take an active role in the performance.
For the past four years, The Lab Collective have worked in a variety of traditional and non traditional performance spaces, exploring and playing across disciplines to generate an innovative theatrical experience.
The Lab Collective’s work consists of two strands; experience led installation and socially relevant Performance. Throughout all of our work, The Lab Collective have attempted to bring practice learnt from these strands to help forge the company’s devising skills.
The Lab Collective is Joseph Thorpe, Natalie Scott, Neil Connolly and Amy Fleming.

StampCollective respond to space, and unlock our audiences’ imaginations through creative play. We develop our work by thoroughly researching concepts and ideas, then we devise and play in interactive workshops to bring our ideas to life. The world the audience sees is a tiny part of the world we imagine and create.
StampCollective provides the context and we all provide the content. Playful, challenging and subversive, our work raises questions about authority, consumerism and what we really hold valuable.
The vanguard of our performance is often the person you will least expect… Each surreal and subtly political playground emerges as unique as the audience inside them.
StampCollective inspire our audiences to take agency and responsibility within our worlds.
StampCollective are an amorphous group of makers, thinkers, dreamers and performers. The core is Holly Hardy, Gaia Harvey Jackson, Ellie Stamp and Sarah Vero.
