Producer Services


 

Helping companies bring their creative ideas to life

General Management

Our team can provide scheduling, budgeting, fundraising and overall support in the practicalities of running a small company.

 

Incubate

Dep Arts’ programme for emerging artists, Incubate is designed for artists or companies who have made just one or two shows or pieces of work. Taking the next stage to developing and touring your work can be tricky – we’ll give you exactly the support you need at this crucial time of development.

Touring


 

Building partnerships between companies and venues and developing successful UK and international tours

Building Partnerships

We help companies and artists build strategic partnerships with venues, promoters and funders both in the UK and worldwide. This might include introducing you directly to theatre managers and funders or representing your work as part of our portfolio.

 

UK Tour Booking

Tour Booking is a core part of what we do. This can be simply booking tour dates for a specific show or might cover the whole tour process, including marketing, press and tour management. We work with small to large-scale venues throughout the UK and internationally.

 

International Tours

We provide overseas tour booking and management services to UK artists and companies, as well as helping to bring non-UK companies and artists into the UK. This includes representation at key market places such as APAP/ CINARS and Tanzmesse

Programming & Project Management


 

Creative and strategic programming for your venue or festival

We support venues and festivals through programming advice or to help develop a particular area of their programme. We specialise in dance and theatre for venues and festivals. Some of our programming work includes Hull Dance, our Partnership with Northern Ballet, Escalator Dance and the New Realities project.

 

We are also highly experienced project managers and are particularly good at managing large-scale outdoor projects. We worked with Liverpool Capital of Culture in 2008 and I-Move, the Cultural Olympiad project for Yorkshire in 2012.

Audience Development


 

Finding an audience for your work

Finding a home for your work is one part of the story – finding audiences for it is the other. We are increasingly working in audience development and marketing and our growing understanding of what makes audiences for new and contemporary work tick gives us a particular edge in helping to support you. We also work with audience development specialists Indigo-Ltd whose Leeds-based Partner Kate Sanderson is researching and developing audiences with our partners in the New Realities project.
