101 is Corn Exchange Newbury’s dedicated creation space for outdoor arts
Based on the former USAF Greenham Common cruise missile base, this 20,000sq ft warehouse space with on-site fabrication, accommodation and rehearsal facilities is a major centre for artistic residencies, creation of new work for public spaces and innovation in site-specific and outdoor performance.
101 hosts approximately 50 residencies throughout the year. We work to support these residencies in any way that we can, if that be with space, building facilities, production advice, administration advice, performance sharing, hosting workshops just to name a few. In some cases we support companies further with our supported residency programme. 101 has recently developed and doubled in size, and we have new en-suite accommodation.
Previous companies that we have hosted include; Acrojou, Tilted Productions, Mimbre, Ramshacklicious, Pif Paf Theatre, Wet Picnic, New Art Club, Whally Range All Stars, Avante Display, Southpaw Dance Company, Circus Geeks, Periplum, Rag and Bone, Aim to Fly, NoFit State, Justice in Motion, Beautiful Creatures Theatre, Tangled Feet, OTTER Producers, Karkatag & Collectif and then, Zoielogic, Theatre Temoin, Hikapee.
