Black Theatre Live


Pilot Theatre

Pilot Theatre has pioneered digital technology in the arts. For Black Theatre Live Pilot was the digital partner supporting live streaming and cinema relay of our touring shows.

Pilot is a multi-platform organisation. We work with diverse teams to make a wide range of work for a diverse range of audiences. By working with artists of the highest calibre across all our platforms it enables us to make new 'pilot' projects - original commissions, theatre tours, conferences, workshops, digital delivery and participatory projects.

We are based at York Theatre Royal, and have been since 2002. We are one of very few national touring mid-scale companies to be based outside London and are therefore able to offer unique training & work opportunities for artists and young people in mid-scale touring that they may be unable to get anywhere else in the region.

Working with excellent established artists we nurture emergent talent and develop our next practice with leading practitioners and diverse teams across all our platforms of delivery. The audiences and communities we aim to reach will be reflected by our diverse teams who make and deliver that work.

We have delivered a wide range of work over the last few years, including the six Camera Livestream of the York Mystery Plays for The Space, the award winning tour of  'Looking for JJ' and more recently the new adaptation by Roy Williams of 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner'
