Riversmeet Productions focusses on high quality writing, performance and teaching which engage with contemporary issues by linking the past to the present.
The different parts of the Riversmeet project are held together by a simple proposition. That the past can help us understand the present. What the past doesn't offer us is a series of blueprints by which to understand where we are now. What it does offer us is analogies, other perspectives from which to view the present moment.
What do we offer you?
The opportunity to think about historical moments, their resonance within contemporary problems and how the cultural products of the past reverberate in the present.
So how do we do this?
Through a range of play performances, publications, teaching modules, reviews and a reflective blog which examines the process of uniting historical research with imaginative production.
