The Bigger Room Project

the bigger room project 

 

An Online Room Can Be A Bigger Room. 

At the start of April we staged #NSDF20, our virtual Festival that was created in just two weeks after Coronavirus Pandemic forced us to cancel our original plans. 

Every crisis offers lessons, and the success of our online Festival has given NSDF the chance to reflect and recalibrate. 

Our online work has given us scope for new methods in our desire to reach out and welcome more people into our NSDF Family, a family that has been widening since our first ever Festival in 1956. 


What is The Bigger Room Project? 

Whilst we will never turn our backs on the power of live art shared together in a communal space, this is an opportunity we will not neglect. 

Therefore we will be instituting monthly events, broadcast live via our Zoom and Facebook, which will be free and available to all

They will feature Industry Leaders - from the UK and the wider world -  giving Masterclasses. 

Recent guests in The Bigger Room have included: Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones, Roy Williams, Indira Varma, Mike Leigh, Rosamund Pike, Francesca Moody with Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and Abigail Graham, Armando Iannucci and Joanna Scanlan and Erica Whyman in conversation with Alan Lane. 

As with every aspect of #NSDF20, all the events in The Bigger Room will be free and available to everyone. 

The next series of Bigger Room events will take place towards the end of August, please check back for more news on this.
