Coronavirus (COVID-19): Our Response

Rob Drummer

17 March 2020

A message from Boundless Theatre Artistic Director, Rob Drummer:

These are extraordinary times and we have been following closely the Government guidance on how to best protect society from Coronavirus.  We have been working closely with our team, artists and listening to our friends and colleagues across the arts and culture sector.

As of today, Tuesday 17th March, the Boundless office will be closed and the team will continue to work remotely, from home until further notice.  Although we are well prepared to work away from the office, there may be some slight delays or drop in productivity as the team adjusts. Thank you for your support whilst we make this transition.

We are working with our Extended Universe European partners Teater Grob, Sala Beckett and Theatre Entropia who are all on lockdown in Denmark, Spain and Greece respectively and are responding to their own governments guidance.  For now we are anticipating their productions as part of Extended Universe will be delayed beyond May 2020. We will be releasing Radio Elusia by Nina Segal, our 5 episode fiction podcast as planned later in April.

Our commitments to all freelancers and artists remain and we intend to honour contracts and provide support where we can. This includes those workers who rely upon us such as our cleaning team. We are a small organisation but take our role in providing assistance seriously and will set to lead by example over the coming weeks and months.

If you work within the arts and culture sector, the latest Arts Council England guidance is particularly helpful and their plans are welcome in supporting artists and organisations to the best of their ability:

Should anything change, we will post updates to our website and on our social channels.

From all of us at Boundless, we will get through this. Stay safe.

Rob
