Camisado Club was formed through NORTH14.
NORTH is a yearly scheme run by Northern Stage. It brings together young theatre makers from the North East, forms a company out of them, and sends them out into the real world.
Mark Calvert, creative associate of Northern Stage guided us through our three month residency, and at the end of it made a theatre company out of us. We met some of the North East’s most exciting artists, visited local venues, went to shows and discussions and events, spent a week with the incredible Paper Birds, and met our older siblings The Letter Room. We then pitched ideas, rehearsed, created, had a few tantrums, had a few light-bulb moments and in March 2014 we premièred our first show Send More Paper to the theatre audiences of the North East.
Since then, we have toured Send More Paper to Edinburgh, Leeds and London, created – and toured the North East with – our second show, You, Me and Everything Else as part of Bridging the Gap, and we are now looking forward to touring the show further afield in Spring 2016, including a short run at Soho Theatre, London.
