Here at Thespis, we are aware that we all still find ourselves in unprecedented times. The outbreak of COVID-19 has changed the way we live our lives and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. As a company, one of our core values is “Adaptability” and this is something which we’ve really embraced as we navigate this unchartered territory; not only for ourselves but for those we work with.
As a company, we are continuing to help our clients adapt to new ways of working and overcome any barriers and obstacles which have arisen a result of COVID-19. Drawing on our years of experience, constant investment in the latest technology and expert staff, we are able to offer all of our clients bespoke solutions to ensure they are able to continue working effectively, innovatively and, most importantly, safely.
We will try and ensure that our industry survives this current crisis.
WORKING IN NON TRADITIONAL SPACES
While it's fantastic to see venues across the country slowly begin to open, we're fully aware that we're a long way from returning back to 'normal'.
That said, we've been inspired by how so many companies and buildings are coming up with innovative ways to transform empty spaces into places for performance.
As a company which has years of experience working in bespoke spaces, contact us to find out how our team can help you to ensure that the show must go on..
A BIG THANK TO OUR FREELANCERS
We understand that this is a particularly difficult time for our family of Freelancers.
We appreciate that without them we cannot do what we do, and we thank them for their continued loyalty and hard work.
We are sending regular updates via e-mail, including details of where to find help and information about the Government’s support scheme for the self-employed.
Who knew that over the course of just a few weeks our whole world would move online? Whether within your professional or personal life, or both, we’ve all had to adapt to the new situation in a very short lapse of time. It can be a bit daunting to comprehend how will we continue to interact and engage with our clients, colleagues and peers, as we move into the next phase and establish a ‘new normal’. As human beings, we thrive on regular interactions with people; so inevitably, we’ve recently seen the use of social networks and increased creativity with virtual forms of communication spike. What does this in turn mean for the imminent future of digital events?
In times like these, visual content is still key as it creates and shapes your audience’s experience and helps generates engagement. Defining your digital event strategy and objectives is paramount to making your programme a success, as is finding the right tool to deliver it.
At Thespis, one of our primary focuses is to ensure whatever your strategy, we are here to offer customised solutions to ensure the success of costuming your digital events.
OUR COMPLETE SHOW RENTAL STOCK IS BECOMING ONE OF THE LARGEST IN THE UK
We have an unparalleled range of period costumes, footwear, accessories, and armoury which can be rented out for any occasion, perfectly suited to your needs. Whether it’s a one-off event or a long-term theatre production, we will provide a hire package that suits your exact requirements. If you still cannot find what you need, we’ve even been known to make new productions come and talk to us. We may be able to make it bespoke.
We regularly issue news and information about the industry, tips and training information – keep tuned by visiting our blog pages.
Our thoughts at this time are with the whole community affected by this situation but we are reassured that, both as a company and as an industry, we have always proved to be resilient and adaptable in the most challenging times. Good luck and if you have any questions then please contact us.
Stay safe & break a leg..
