Every year the Eastgate aims to work in partnership with established local arts organisations, inspiring individuals and enthusiasts to develop a range of special projects – some in a particular arts discipline, others combining different areas of arts to produce a new work.

Art in the Age of Anxiety

This project aims to bring dancers, musicians and writers together to collaborate to produce an original multi disciplinary set of performance pieces exploring creative life in these extraordinary times.  The artists, working together over a 12 week period, will share ideas, develop the dance work, and then present their performance initially on film and later on stage.

During lockdown, much of the work has been developed on Zoom and other virtual media with the aim of producing live performances just as soon as is possible.
