    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Haste Theatre has independently run since 2013, and devised 5 original shows (Oyster Boy, Beyond Cragporth Rock, The Hideout, Where the Hell is Bernard? and Ex-Batts & Broilers), touring internationally to critical acclaim.

    We do not receive regular funding, and after Arts Council England’s decision not to fund our emergency bid we are in the serious situation of ceasing operation when reserves run out in August. We have project funding to finish creating our 6th show, An Anastasia, which we will honour as soon as we can to support the incredible creatives we have on board, but we will have no means to go ahead and tour it.

    Our shows find lightness in the dark, and the dark in light. We run workshops and community projects for all kinds of people; those who are creatives and those who aren’t, with the aim to empower and provide joyful experiences for as many people as we can. We keep costs as low as possible to keep them accessible for those who need us.

    Due to Covid-19 we have so far lost more than £10,000 through cancelled tours, workshops and funding, and this figure is only set to rise as we have no idea when we will be able to begin operating again. We need some help to stabilise the company, and hit the ground running again as soon as we can.

    We therefore are forced to ask you, our audience, for help. If you have ever found joy in attending a show or workshop of ours and are in the position to give some support, we would be sincerely grateful for any donation large or small. We totally understand this pandemic has affected everyone and as our audience is predominantly younger and of lower incomes than average theatre audiences, please do not donate if you feel you’re not in a position to! Give us a share instead?

    We've never needed you more.

    Nothing but love, Haste x

    Haste Theatre LTD è una compagnia di teatro fisico fondata nel 2013, che ha autoprodotto 5 spettacoli (Oyster Boy, Beyond Cragporth Rock, The Hideout, Where the hell is Bernard? and Ex-batts & Broilers) e si è esibita a livello internazionale con successo di critica.

    Non riceviamo finanziamenti su base regolare, e dopo la decisione di Arts Council England di non finanziare la nostra candidatura per i fondi d’emergenza, ci troviamo costrette a dover chiudere la compagnia quando il denaro finirà in Agosto. Abbiamo i fondi ricevuti per un altro progetto, il nostro sesto spettacolo “An Anastasia”, che useremo appena possibile per retribuire l’incredibile squadra creativa che ci sta lavorando, ma non abbiamo nessun mezzo per poter andare avanti e portare lo spettacolo in tour in futuro.

    I nostri spettacoli trovano la leggerezza nel dramma e il dramma nella leggerezza. Teniamo laboratori progetti per la comunità aperti a tutti, creativi e non, con l’obiettivo di costruire esperienze incoraggianti gioiose per più persone possibili. Teniamo i costi al minimo per renderli accessibili a tutti.

    A causa del Covid-19 abbiamo finora perso più di 10000£ con la cancellazione di finanziamenti, tour e laboratori, e queste cifre sono destinate a salire dal momento che non sappiamo quando potremo ricominciare a lavorare.

    Per questo motivo siamo costrette a chiedere a voi, il nostro pubblico, un po’ d’aiuto. Se vedere un nostro spettacolo o partecipare ad un nostro laboratorio vi ha mai portato un po’ di gioia e se siete nella posizione di poter dare un aiuto, piccolo o grande che sia, ve ne saremo sinceramente grate.

    Siamo anche assolutamente consapevoli che questa pandemia ha colpito tutti indistintamente, quindi se non vi sentite nella posizione di poter donare, per favore non fatelo.

    Non abbiamo mai avuto più bisogno di voi.

    Con tanto amore, Haste. X

      WOW! Thank you so much to everyone for helping us raise over £3000 in just 4 days! We are in shock, and truly humbled at the kindness - we promise to make you all proud. The amount has meant we can stabilise the company for which we are beyond grateful. The JustGiving page will stay open, any extra donations will go towards touring the new show/rolling out more workshops as soon as we are able to do so. Thank you. Thank you thank you. 💛
