On the 30th of April, we will hold our official launch at SOAS from 6-8pm. In the run up to this event we would like to introduce our speakers of the evening.
Papergang Theatre is a platform for British East Asian talent. Our mission is to change that by focusing on developing British East Asian new writing. We believe that if you create more content, there’ll be more opportunities for our voices to be heard. And more opportunities for British East Asian actors, producers, directors to flourish.
We were formed by graduates of the Royal Court Unheard Voices programme, and we have a wide network of talent in the community. Most of us are born or bred in the UK, now in or 20s and 30s. We want to tell contemporary, British East Asian stories about the here and now, rather than always looking back at where we’ve come from. That’s a unique perspective that we don’t think anyone else has the moment.
We’re involved with AHAA because we know the importance of bringing people together. We would not be where we are today without the help of the wider network and the community. If there is anything that we can do to encourage others and share the experiences we have with others than we are fully behind it.
