A young cross-arts company, fashioning musical and dramatic works of the early modern period anew...
"If there is to be a new renaissance in the arts in our time, it will be thanks to people like the New Renaissance Collective, whose eloquent abilities to reconnect music, poetry, drama and dance are already bringing pleasures unknown since the days of Elizabeth I's court to diverse and delighted audiences across modern Britain."
Professor Michael Dobson, Director of The Shakespeare Institute
We are a group of artists, from different fields and backgrounds, who met over a shared passion for Renaissance music and drama.
We specialise in taking these disparate forms (poems, songs, plays, operas) and reworking them to make accessible, unique performances.
We believe that being able to tune in to a piece of art from another time often depends on how it's first exposed to you. We work with our resident venue: the CLF Art Cafe, Peckham, to bring an exciting, modern working of this material to as many locals and travellers as we can.
