Devoted & Disgruntled (D&D) is a nationwide conversation about theatre and the performing arts, run by theatre company Improbable. We use a process called Open Space Technology to facilitate gatherings where everyone’s voice can be heard and no topic is censored. There are no key-note speakers and no fixed agendas – you decide what gets worked on at each D&D event. We just provide the time and space to collaborate on an equal footing.
Everyone is welcome. Since 2006, we’ve held over 140 events across the country, attended by all manner of theatre creatives and professionals working at every level in the industry. If you want to change the theatre world for the better, we need you at D&D.
“Everyone is there on equal terms, whether you’re the artistic director of a major theatre or a first-year student just beginning to make work. This is a place where expertise and experience are shared with real generosity and no strings attached. Devoted and Disgruntled is not just a talking shop – it actually spurs action and initiatives such as mentoring schemes, the sharing of skills and spaces, and people coming together creatively and making work.” – Lyn Gardner, Theatre Critic
