Post the Young Producer Programme, Desara continued to build her relationship with the BAC as an Assistant Facilitator one some of our Homegrown Projects. Further to that, she went on to join OpenWorks Theatre company as an Associate Producer and produced Dennis Kelly’s first play Debris at the Southwark Playhouse. In September 2013, Desara joined the Bush Theatre as their Apprentice Producer, supporting the production of the entire artistic programme.
“I’d describe my experience at the BAC as an organised mess. It was always busy and thriving with ideas, artists and work, sometimes too busy to get your head around it all but (due to the brilliant producers acting as mentors at the BAC) I was able to harness all of that and turn it into producing a great 3 day festival.”
