intercultural dialogues in theatrical forms

Fault Lines

Our "riotous ritual" (The Stage) was out and about this Spring, and there will be more chances to see the work this summer -- stay tuned!

What If... at Baltic Gateshead on 1st May

We think we can change it all. We think we have the imagination to change it all. We really do. So, to help with the changes, we are throwing an OPTIMISM PARTY! A party by and for desperate optimists. Welcome!

Featuring eight of the twelve artists which took part in the first FIELD residency in 2020 - Chloe Smith, Ben Wright, Toni Dee Paul, Umar Butt, Lady Kitt, Brendan Curtis, Krissi Musiol, Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie

The year began with a new publication, FIELD notes TWO by the participants on our most recent FIELD residency.

We're taking Fault Lines on tour in April and May, visiting venues across Scotland and England.

Then, our Of Time and Place project, working with rural people to create a national portrait from their experiences, takes us to places across the country.

2021 for us

We wrote an end of year blog to mark what has been an extraordinary year, our 10th year.

The blog is a 5 minute read and if you want to know what we got up this year, have a look here. If you value all the work we do to reach communities and support peers, please consider making a donation. Warmest wishes, Kat and Alister x

We are Two Destination Language...

Two Destination Language is led by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie. We make bold award-winning performance work which explores ideas of identity, belonging and boundaries. Our work tours in the UK and internationally. It can be seen on theatre stages, in village halls, in libraries, in galleries, in parks, along roads, in abandoned shops. We also create exhibitions, installations and print publications.

We work with other brilliant and often award winning creatives and artists to create experiences which are touching, thought provoking, intellectually stimulating and very visually arresting.

Our projects working with non-professional members of the community have been transformative for those involved and for the places they live, shared with public audiences like any of our other work.

Our curatorial projects take shape in festivals we produce and conversations we undertake. Listening is a key method in our process and inclusion underpins everything we do!

Two Destination Language is an Associate Artist at ARC Stockton and a registered charity committed to promoting the arts as a vital part of societal wellbeing, challenging populist ideas, reaching audience members from under-represented groups and supporting artists in every way we can.

we're a charity

helping great art get made and connecting it to audiences is what we do, close to home and in places we visit

we believe nobody does their best work when struggling
