The Lemon House Theatre was founded by Artistic Directors, Jennifer Cerys and Samia Djilli. Natalie supported the Lemon House Theatre in their first year. Her role was as an arts administrator and marketing assistant. This was supporting their hugely successful Scratch Night, the first in their Mixed Tape Series. This initial Scratch Night focused on duel heritage / mixed race and the concept of identity. Next she supported with their run at The Bunker Theatre in London of Willow and Different Sand. Natalie was really proud to be with Jennifer and Samia at the start of the Lemon House Theatre's journey. She is also incredibly grateful that they trusted her, gave her her first chance, and can not wait to see what the future brings for them. Thank you Lemon House Theatre !
Me and the wonderful Lauren Elizabeth connected over twitter and its been an amazing ride and journey! She certainly brightened up my quarantine.
Lauren had the idea of supporting artists during lockdown by putting on a festival of theatre work. Who doesn't love a festival right? With all site festivals being cancelled it looked a very different summer for many festival fans.
The Show Face Festival is a virtual Theatre Festival showcasing new work created by hundreds of emerging creatives from emerging writers, actors and directors to emerging designers, artists, musicians and technicians across a series of virtual platforms.
KickitDown Productions was set up by Artistic Director Robert Thorpe-Woods. Natalie was blown away by his energy, and passion, for connecting with emerging artists, creatives, directors and producers. Robert was willing to give Natalie her first full producing role and she was thrilled to be part of Roberts vision. Robert set up KickitDown during Covid-19, and to have over 600 written plays sent to him on his first call out under KickitDown showed Robert was not only making footprints in the arts world but absolutely using that foot to kick down barriers.
