We support emerging and established theatre artists at varying stages of their career through our Rifco Associates programme. Below we catch up with some of our 2022-23 cohort and their projects.

Our 2022-23 Associates have been creating relevant, exciting new work for digital media. Ideas range from the story of a South Asian man who joins the EDL, to a piece that takes a fresh look at brown sisterhood.

Our 2022-23 Associates are Zishan Asfar, Gurjot Dhaliwal, Ben Grant, Kurban Kassam, Jaisal Marmion and Saher Shah. Hear more from them here:


"They help and mentor you to create an actual, tangible piece of art"
