My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding
The Collaborator Tea Parties

Local stories by local artists for local audiences

Kali's Collaborator Tea Parties were a networking event bringing local practitioners, producers and promoters together for a relaxed afternoon of tea, cake and conversations to share ideas and opportunities for creating/ commissioning new theatre work.

The Collaborator Tea Parties were inspired by the successful collaboration between Arts Alive, Black Country Touring and Kali that created My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding.

After a short presentation about how My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding was developed into the high quality, sell-out show it became, tea and cake was served, and conversations orchestrated. It was an opportunity for rural touring schemes, promoters and rural venues interested in commissioning new work for rural touring to informally meet individual practitioners, producers and theatre companies to share ideas and discuss ways of collaborating to create new work in an informal and inspiring way.  

Collaborator Tea Parties took place in various venues around the UK alonside the tour of My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding.
