History

Since we started in 2006, we have worked with literally hundreds of different artists and companies in many different ways. We have produced and toured work across four different continents (USA, Europe, Asia & Australasia) including approximately 250 individual UK performances a year. We have sourced well over 3 million pounds worth of funding for our artists/ Dep Arts Productions and to deliver our numerous projects.

 

We have a core staff team of five in addition to a host of specialist freelance / Associate Producer staff who come in to work with us on any given project. The company’s office is based in Quarry Hill, the cultural quarter for Leeds where we have been based since 2009.

 

Dep Arts have a brilliant understanding of what emerging theatre companies need. Without their support and encouragement, our ideas wouldn’t be as ambitious and Black Coffee Theatre would be functioning in a very different way.
