For the first time eight leading London theatres (Battersea Arts Centre, Bush Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith, Royal Court, Sadler’s Wells, Somerset House, Theatre Royal Stratford East and Young Vic) collaborated to celebrate the diversity of London. It was a season of six shows highlighting London’s multicultural community.
We supported the developmental stages of the collaborations between the World Stages London consortium and their international counterparts.
It is already clear that World Stages has been a catalyst for future cross-London and international collaborations.
World Stages London was made possible by funding from Arts Council England, the British Council and various trusts and sponsors. The performances supported by the British Council reached a total UK live audience of 75,500.
