HARLOW Playhouse is delighted to announce Rhiannon Faith as Associate Artist.
Rhiannon Faith is to be Harlow Playhouse’s first ever associate artist. This follows on from the hugely successful first collaboration between Rhiannon and Harlow Playhouse, Smack That: A Conversation.
Rhiannon Faith said ‘I am delighted to be the first ever Associate Artist at Harlow Playhouse. I have worked with Rory and the team for the past 3 years building Smack that (a conversation) with members of the Harlow community and local charity Safer Places. Harlow Playhouse and Harlow Council have formed an excellent partnership and forward-thinking dialogue to bring high-quality performance to their communities, to serve the needs of the local people. I am thrilled to continue making work with a venue that has the people at its heart. I am interested in how art changes lives and will strive to embed my creative practice into Harlow and make work that makes a difference. The team are supportive, forward-thinking and courageous in their artistic approach and I can’t wait to continue our relationship and make new exciting, boundary-pushing dance theatre with and for the people.’
Harlow Playhouse continues in its mission to be at the centre of changing Harlow’s reputation, ensuring that it is seen as a hub of opportunity, inclusivity, creativity and regeneration. We do this by delivering a balanced programme, with a focus on community, commissions, commercial and contemporary work. Creating a sustainable cultural hub, which engages the people of Harlow and wider community in an inclusive and inspiring way encouraging participation across many art forms.
Rory Davies of Harlow Playhouse said “We are delighted to have Rhiannon as our first ever Associate Artist. Her values and artistic vision is exactly the right match for Harlow and it’s our joint determination that will help us to achieve our mission. All of the work Rhiannon creates will be embedded in Harlow, working with people from Harlow, inspiring and broadening the ways we access arts.”
