Ghosts of England

A new work for 2025

We are delighted to share the news that we have been successful in securing funding from Arts Council England and partners in beginning the preliminary research into a new project in 2024/2025.

'Ghosts of England' is an exploration of England and Englishness, examining our complex relationship towards territorial imperative and national identity.

Anthony says 'My personal relationship to England is complex. It is a mix of deep patriotism in one hand, and on the other, it is convoluted by a deep suspicion of English patriotism. In recent years, English patriotism, in its platitudinous and broader superficial guise, has not always epitomised a country in which I am proud to call home, nor has it always spoke to (or for) the communities in which I live amongst, with or belong. 

In asking the questions ‘Who are we? Where do we come from? And where are going?’, I hope to somehow encourage conversations that support the derivative origins and customs of the English peoples and their sense of place as being an accumulative product of both international impact and migrational influence. An old nation, an England as a confluent concept, yet an England that is still shapeshifting.'

This funding will support us in delivering 27 workshops and engagement opportunities, develop international collaborations, and provide employment for 12 creative practitioners.
