Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre

Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre is devoted to fostering a critical and creative culture in which artists can develop their practice. We offer practitioners the opportunity to engage in dialogue with theatre critics and scholars, to pursue and research current theatre projects, and to benefit from the expertise available at Birkbeck. Through our work, theatre makers, writers, scholars and critics make use of the resources available in our Arts building at 43 Gordon Square. We also host a range of public workshops, talks and symposia exploring contemporary theatre, as part of Birkbeck’s annual Arts Week and our own programme of events. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The Centre’s work is closely associated with Birkbeck’'s degree programmes in Theatre Studies, Directing, Producing and Creative Writing.
