We’re delighted to share the news that Dante or Die have become our very first SITELINES Associate Artists. Since 2013, we have been collaborating with the nationally acclaimed company and co-commissioned both 'I Do' (Malmaison Hotel in 2013 & 2016) and 'Handle With Care' (Lok'n'Store in 2016). We’re so excited to create this long term partnership, which will allow us to originate more projects in new places around Reading.
This announcement coincides with the company starting a Research & Development period on a brand new production, currently entitled Kiss Marry Kill. The R&D has been commissioned by us in partnership with the University of Reading, and is part of our Development & Diversity Through Theatre project, funded by Arts Council England.
