Hothouse

Hothouse

Since its inception in 1963, the Traverse has been a hothouse for new talent; cultivating and nurturing both emerging and established artists.

Traverse Hothouse showcases home grown emerging theatre companies and artists, and returns to the Traverse this autumn. Traverse 2 becomes a breeding ground where four local companies will share their newest creations, at varying stages of development.

Traverse Hothouse showcases home grown emerging theatre companies and artists, giving artists a supportive environment where they can experiment, explore and discover. Over one week, selected companies share the seedlings of their newest creations at varying stages of development, through rehearsed readings and scratch performances.

For emerging theatre makers, the Traverse is unique; uniquely brave, uniquely exciting - nurturing, challenging, leading by example.
