Battersea Arts Centre is based in the former Battersea Town Hall and has been described by the Guardian as ‘Britain’s most influential theatre’. BAC delivers an extensive programme of activity each year ranging from theatre productions and participatory workshops to weddings, tea dances, community support groups and corporate events, and theatre and participation work developing new forms of theatre and connecting with audiences and participants.
PPP has partnered with BAC on a series of projects that have been important in the recent development of both organisations, beginning with Rio Occupation London in 2012, when BAC as co-producers hosted all 30 Rio artists for a month in its residential rooms. The two organisations have also partnered for four years since 2012 on The Agency. Most recently, BAC nominated emerging artist and Beatbox Academy member Kyronne Parkes to visit Rio de Janeiro during the final seminar week of The Art of Cultural Exchange as one of the first participants on PPP’s 20th Anniversary series of exchanges.
