We are super excited to announce that Blooming Ludus in partnership with Broadleaf Theatre from Canada have been funded by the New Conversations program! This is a pilot scheme that brings together companies across Canada and the UK to explore new ideas and new collaborations. Our artistic director Francine Dulong (based in London) got in touch with Kevin Wong (based in Toronto), the artistic director of Broadleaf and after a few online conversations Climate Futures was born!
As two theatre companies tackling climate change, we plan to use the support for a practice exchange both in London and in Toronto, to dream and gather seeds for potential future projects, and to enrich and connect our respective eco-systems and networks. Stay tuned for more news as Kevin’s visit to London is this week! A big thank you to the High Commission of Canada, British Council and Farnham Maltings for their support!

We also have some more big news from Haeweon in Korea coming soon…. we’re full of exclamation points right now ;)
