New Tides Platform is an independent organisation established in 2015, exploring and encouraging cross-cultural exchanges and dialogue within contemporary performing arts. We aim to map theatrical, literary and cultural crossings in theatre and performance through creative projects, research, and outreach programmes.
New Tides Platform functions as an interface between research and the creative sector. As a collaborative venture we are working together with universities and research centres, theatres and theatre-makers, creative/ art organisations as well as publishers.
As facilitators of cultural projects and initiators of new research, we provide a forum for encounters, debates and interchanges, connecting academic research, contemporary theatre-making and communities of thinkers, makers and spectators.
Working as an outreach platform, we develop local, national and international collaborations and networks that are responsive to social and cultural changes within and outside contemporary theatre practices.
We are home of Migrant Dramaturgies Network, an international collective of theatre-makers, academics and organisations from across Europe, Australia, USA and Canada.
