The Producer Farm

Get Together, Get Informed & Get Away

Dance Umbrella, Bristol Old Vic FERMENT, In Between Time, Fuel and Coombe Farm Studios are delighted to have completed their first joint initiative, The Producer Farm.  This residency, for creative producers who have been working professionally in any field of contemporary performance for 5 - 10 years, took place at Coombe Farm Studios in Dittisham, Devon from the 27 June to 1 July 2016. The residency aims to provide time and space for mid-career producers to consider their current work and future potential.

“Producers are central to the development and delivery of the arts. The work is often fast paced with high levels of responsibility. For them to continue and expand their work it is essential to give them space to think more broadly, to re energise, and to share.”
