Joint Statement on the Theatre Industry

Monday, October 23rd, 2017 by Tricycle

Monday 23rd October 2017

Following the reports and allegations of the last two weeks, first in America and, more recently, closer to home, we have come together to make clear that there can be no place for sexual harassment or abuse of power in our industry. 

We salute the bravery of everyone who calls out this abusive behaviour. We support a theatre culture that empowers people to speak up: a culture where abuse of power is always challenged.  

We are committed to working together to ensure that theatre is a safe space for all, where everyone is respected and listened to. The Royal Court Theatre’s Day of Action on Saturday 28 October is one important part of this process. Together, we are developing further ways to support people to speak up and to hold others to account. 

It is the responsibility of the industry to create and nurture a culture where unacceptable behaviour is swiftly challenged and addressed.  

We want to be absolutely clear and say again: there is no room for sexual harassment or abuse of power in the theatre. Everyone deserves to enjoy a happy, healthy and safe working environment. We will support you to speak out, and we will hear you when you do.

Mapping Brent

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017 by Tricycle

In 2017 the Tricycle Theatre joined forces with six venues across the North London borough of Brent to deliver six new theatre companies.

Venturing out into Neasden, South Kilburn, Stonebridge, Wembley Park, Harlesden and Kilburn, Mapping Brent was our most ambitious outreach project to date, and saw more than 100 young people from across the borough meet weekly to develop their acting skills and build their confidence.

Led by twelve professional playwrights and directors from across the industry, Mapping Brent extended the Tricycle’s Creative Learning programme across the borough to build lasting relationships with communities and gave young people a voice and a platform to be heard.

Here’s a look at that process…
