The Genesis Foundation supports Rufus Norris and the National Theatre’s work in developing new forms of music theatre in the UK. The aim is to prioritise the development of new forms of music theatre and to enhance the opportunity, structure and rigour around music theatre work in the UK.
Royal Court Theatre
For over 20 years, John Studzinski and later the Genesis Foundation supported the Royal Court’s International Playwrights’ programme, with the aim of supporting its ground-breaking work with emerging international playwrights. Over the years the theatre’s International Department encouraged creative dialogue with hundreds of playwrights and theatre-makers around the world.
