[teaser_large]Black Country Touring brings some of the best professional touring theatre and dance from the UK and beyond to the local communities of the Black Country (the boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton). We work with local people in the Black Country to programme this work into places where the local community can get to see it – these might be a school, community centre or the local art gallery.[/teaser_large]
We also work on projects where people from the Black Country can get directly involved in performing themselves. We’ve run all sorts of events from cross-generational projects to stand-up comedy courses; but all our work is about allowing people from Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton access to both the experience of watching and being involved in high quality performance theatre and dance.
We work with a wide range of people, this includes specific work with young people through the Young Promoters Scheme, as well as working with South Asian communities through Resonate and disabled people through Impress; but key to all our work is the notion that whoever promotes, everyone is welcome. We want to encourage different people to come together and enjoy the experience – together.
