Pilot is a multi-platform organisation. We work with diverse teams to make a wide range of work for a diverse range of audiences. By working with artists of the highest calibre across all our platforms it enables us to make new 'pilot' projects - original commissions, theatre tours, conferences, workshops, digital delivery and participatory projects.
We are based at York Theatre Royal, and have been since 2002. We are one of very few national touring mid-scale companies to be based outside London and are therefore able to offer unique training & work opportunities for artists and young people in mid-scale touring that they may be unable to get anywhere else in the region.
Working with excellent established artists we nurture emergent talent and develop our next practice with leading practitioners and diverse teams across all our platforms of delivery. The audiences and communities we aim to reach will be reflected by our diverse teams who make and deliver that work.
We have delivered a wide range of work over the last few years, including the six Camera Livestream of the York Mystery Plays for The Space, the award winning tour of 'Looking for JJ' and more recently the new adaptation by Roy Williams of 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner'
Our feature film 'The Knife That Killed Me' was co-produced with GreenScreen Productions with UK distribution will be released this autumn.
Our planned programme of work will focus on creating 'new work from diverse voices' where new and reimagined texts hold meaning and relevance especially to our target audience of young people.
This new work will focus on five strands - Touring Theatre, Participation, Learning, International Outreach Online
