Winter Season of the Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell

Published by: Carolin Kopplin on 16th Oct 2016 | View all blogs by Carolin Kopplin


The Blue Elephant Theatre launches an ambitious and engaging new Winter Season this October. Their commitment to supporting emerging artists is demonstrated yet again, especially by their second Elefeet Dance Festival which provides an important platform for upcoming choreographers to showcase their work in London and runs until 19th November.


Elefeet includes the final Blue Cloud Scratch of 2016, an exciting collaboration with Cloud Dance Festival, which has already fed into the main programme at the Blue Elephant. 


The Blue Elephant continues to present quality children's productions, with Moon on a Stick returning to Camberwell in December with their magical Christmas show Jack Frost.


This season also sees the launch of Mad about the Elephant, the Blue Elephant's new Friends' Scheme. For as little as £25 a year, Friends of the theatre can support its important work with emerging artists and local young people and help secure its future.


Executive and Co-Artistic Director Niamh de Valera says “2015 and 2016 have seen some of our toughest times, but also some of our most rewarding. We've faced the reality of cuts in core funding and uncertainty over whether there will be any funding at all. At the same time, we've reached thousands of young people, ran successful projects with adults around mental health, engaged new audiences and supported many companies to secure funding for the first time and showcase their work. We're especially delighted that Sulaimon Idris, who was part of our youth theatre from the time he was 10, is now the assistant on the project and an incredible example to the young people he works with. We're so excited about the shows we have coming up and we hope people will venture to Camberwell to support these fantastic performances and join our Friends' Scheme so that we can continue to offer opportunities like these.”
