DO YOU ENJOY THE WORK WE CREATE? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SUPPORT OUR FUTURE PROJECTS?

2015 has been an incredible journey for The Human Zoo. We created two new productions and began developing our next project, 'GIANT'. After the next few months, Human Zoo will have toured to over 20 UK venues since we began making work in 2013. 

We have also begun to engage with more and more young/ emerging artists, youth groups, communities and schools than ever before as part of our commitment to providing valuable and genuine engagement opportunities for community groups as a way of increasing the impact and integrity of the projects we deliver as we move forward as a company. We aim to focus our attention on developing projects for local audiences and artists based in Croydon, whilst still maintaining our reputation as a regional touring theatre company.

Over 7000 people engaged with our work in person (audiences, workshop attendees, networking sessions, Don't Feed the Penguin, Relaxed Performances etc) in 2016, which we hope reflects our open, proactive and accessible approach to theatre-making as an emerging theatre company.

We are currently looking to build on our work from last year, reaching ambitious targets for audience and participant engagement through performances, commissioned work, outdoor work, workshops and online documentation. Your support can help us achieve these goals.

SUPPORTERS SCHEME

In order to continue fulfilling to create new work, we are increasingly required to find new ways of funding our work. As well as securing funding from Arts Council England, venues, ticket sales and local councils, we are also reaching out to you, our supporters and audiences, to ask you to consider pledging your support as part of our Supporters Scheme, with some great exclusive perks and complimentary tickets included. These donations help us to secure further funding from other sources that we might not otherwise be eligible for, so each supporter really does make a huge difference.

We hope that you might be able to consider supporting our work in 2018 - thank you!
