March 2014 CODE OF CONDUCT
We are making a major new piece of work about gay identity, which is to be premiered later in the year and are very fortunate to have been given a Residency at The Basement under the East by South East Programme providing resources and mentoring support. We are also looking forward to spending a week in residence at The Point in Eastleigh during April. A segment from this new work will be performed on Thursday April 18th at The Basement as a work in progress.
We are delighted to be receiving mentoring support with this project from the very experienced live artist Adrian Howells.
