Covid-safe ‘theatre-in-the-round’ experiences

Brand new theatre company Popp Theatre has secured Arts Council England funding to bring a new, groundbreaking, innovative theatre of the future to Truro.

This innovative, physical structure is a concept which contains 16 clear pods taking up to 4 people in each pod, thereby cocooning the audience around the stage, giving safety to both the audience and the performers.

It is designed to be a fully Covid-safe & compliant ‘theatre-in-the-round’ experience and will enjoy a 2week residency at Truro’s ‘Pydar Pop up’ space from May 22nd – June 6th 2021 and can be moved to other venues as required.

Just when live performance is struggling, thanks to the Arts Council’s £46k funding support, Popp Theatre will be helping to re-ignite the live arts sector by being able to put on a  varied menu of theatre, dance, comedy, poetry and cabaret. This will enable us to help artists get back on stage doing what they do best, entertaining audiences once more.

In addition, Popp Theatre has the support of Truro City Council and Cornwall Council who have sponsored their community initiative to enable one pod to be subsidised for every single show. This means a bubble of four who may have been adversely affected by Covid will, together, be able to see a show for free.  This will be done on a lottery system. Popp feel they have an obligation to keep art accessible to all, and this is one way in which they can do this.
