Eclipse

Eclipse is the foremost Black-led national touring company in the UK, at the vanguard of delivering diverse programming in theatre, film and radio across the country. It is our mission to use the Black* British experience to create work to enrich the stories shared with theatre audiences nationwide and to diversify those audiences.

From our home in Sheffield, we have developed two unique movements:

  • Slate - Black. Arts. World: Supporting Black artists in the North to work locally, nationally and internationally, building sustainable models for careers in the independent sector. Current tours: Same

Same Different by Naomi Sumner Chan and Distorted

Constellations by Nwando Ebizie.

  • Revolution Mix: Spearheading the largest ever national delivery of new Black British productions in theatre, film and radio.

*For Eclipse “Black” is inclusive of anyone marginalised for their race or ethnicity. Solidarity.
