International Creative Lab

An exchange between artists in Norfolk, Brazil, Nicaragua, Greece,

Germany, Hong Kong & India 

The International Creative Lab is an online remote rehearsal room that connects 7 Norfolk multidisciplinary artists together with 7 artists around the globe. In direct response to the shutting down of theatre and the arts across the UK, we attempt to support freelancer artists to keep collaborating, keep making, to connect and to inspire.

Two individuals, from two different creative disciplines, from two different places in the world, will come together in a remote rehearsal room to inspire each other through an improvised rehearsal hour.


Over an hour, you can watch as artists try to connect, and communicate ideas, thoughts, feelings and questions. Crossing borders, disciplines, cultures and languages.

Watch a Live Artist & Musical Theatre collaborate

With Porgtuguise Interpretation. 

Watch a Classical Indian Dancer & a Animator/Poet collaborate

Watch two Theatre Makers collaborate. With BSL Interpreter

This a place for experimentation, play, curiosity and collaboration, this is not an end performance. It could be a beginning, a place to spark a new idea, a chance to begin something.

After the hour, there is a discussion between the artists and a facilitator. There is also time for questions from the general public.

Join us on this experiment where artists from Brazil, India, Hong Kong, Nicaragua, Greece, Austria, and Germany meet artists in Norfolk, the UK.

Some of the artists get together for the first time, from across time zones
