'a classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read'
- Mark Twain
"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"
Professor Michael Dobson, Director of the Shakespeare Institute
We are a company of artists, devising experimental new work using physical theatre, classical music and the dusty books on your bookshelves.
We create musical adaptations of the stories you love, and the ones you’ve never heard of, or at least never got around to reading. Our aim: to reinvent, reimagine, and reinvigorate literature and music from history, to create unique, thought-provoking performances for today.
We are artistic residents at the CLF Art Cafe, Peckham.
