We are born to fly T-Shirt

This artwork represents the resilience of all performing artists, represented in the drawing by a ballet dancer, facing huge pressure during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Britain’s world-leading performing arts sector has been brought to its knees and faces ruin without urgent government investment.

…. we are born to fly … let us fly again ….

It refers to the news of an open letter signed by The Society of London Theatre (SOLT), UK Theatre and nearly 100 actors, writers, directors and leading creatives figures for government action to prevent the sector from crumbling.

The arts industry is facing a “cultural catastrophe” caused by the entire shutdown of arts venues and live events.

“Theatre is one of the UK’s most dazzling success stories. In all its forms, whether drama, musical theatre, opera or dance, British theatre is a world-class cultural and economic force with productions filling venues from Broadway to Beijing.

“The pandemic has brought theatre to its knees. Theatres do not have the money to operate viably with physical distancing. It is difficult to see venues opening before the end of the year.”

The industry is asking the government to continue the job retention scheme, establish an emergency relief fund and come up with a new package of support for the army of freelancers who help create so much of the sector’s work.


What happened

Most theatres have been closed since mid-March. English theatres will be able to re-open from July 4 2020, although live performances will not yet be allowed.

In America, Broadway will remain closed until September 6 at the earliest.

As they burn through cash reserves, about three-quarters of venues say they will have run out of money by Christmas.

Dowden, the Culture Secretary said: “I am not going to stand by and see our world-leading position in arts and culture destroyed,” he said. “Of course, I want to get the money flowing. I am not going to let anyone down.”
