Special projects

Royal Shakespeare Theatre - lit up for the Cultural Olympiad in 2008

We run creative projects to explore new ideas and exciting collaborations. You can participate in many of them and some happen quietly behind the scenes. All aim to experiment with fresh perspectives and open up creative processes. We engage in all art forms to develop and commission new work.

Current projects:

RSC Open Stages
This year the RSC, in partnership with a number of regional theatres and amateur theatre associations, will run a national programme of skills sharing events and showcases, with amateur societies from across the UK invited to produce their own RSC branded Shakespeare-themed productions.

Past projects:

Such Tweet Sorrow

Adelaide Road
2011 - Inspired by Shakespeare's As You Like It and part of the RSC's Roundhouse season in the same year, Adelaide Road was an interactive project linking the RSC's work at the Roundhouse with its season of three world premieres at nearby Hampstead Theatre.

Billy animations
2012 - Meet Billy. A light-hearted series of six short animated films created by the Brothers McLeod with music from Gary Yershon and commissioned by the RSC to celebrate the reopening of our theatres.
