Hello. My name is Jonathan Stephenson but you can call me Jon and I'm the Artistic Director of Bourne West Productions. In this small team we also have Dora, our producer. And together we're going to take over the world. Well maybe not, but it did sound like a good dramatic opening to our first blog/newsletter/ramblings.
Now that we have a lovely new website and all those social media sites that you're supposed to have I thought that it would be nice if there was also a space where we can discuss, debate, promote, be inspired and most importantly, to get everyone creative.
So what are Bourne West up to at the moment? Well, we are working on our new stage play 'Ruby' at the moment and we'll have plenty of news on that when it's time to share. We're also working on our new project BourneLab which will consist of a 6 week introduction course to being a 'creative'. It will be open for those that have limited experience in the arts and an opportunity to broaden horizons.
We also want to use this space to show poetry, so if you fancy having a stab at it or are already an established individual, pop us a message and we'll be more than happy to accommodate you here at Bourne West and give you a platform to share your work.
We'll also be keeping you up to date with our #Theatre nights. These nights are special to BourneWest, it's what started the company. An evening of late night art in the heart of Notting Hill at the luxurious Notting Hill Gate Cinema. You'll always find some beautiful spoken word, thought provoking prose or politically engaging theatre at these nights so be sure to keep an eye out on future events.
We also want to hear from you. We want to hear your opinions on what you make of the arts at the moment? Are there any interesting articles that you want to share and discuss? Are there any good playwriting competitions happening? Any opportunities that you want to share? Let us know. Let's create a platform where we can share our ideas and opinions in a safe space. A constant rehearsal room if you will. If you want to contribute your own piece to be shared by us then feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
