The Turbine Theatre Launches at Battersea Power Station
The Turbine Theatre, presented by Bill Kenwright and founded and led by Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills has set up stage at Battersea Power Station. The theatre is located under the Grosvenor Bridge railway arches at Circus West Village, the first chapter of the iconic Battersea Power Station’s regeneration, which is already a thriving riverside destination located at the foot of the iconic Grade II* listed landmark.
Honor Fishburn, Director of Placemaking at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said: “We are extremely excited to work with Paul Taylor-Mills on The Turbine Theatre to enhance the arts and culture offering already available at Circus West Village. Paul will build upon the success of The Village Hall, which will continue to be used as an extraordinary venue for generating new ideas and talent, while widening access to creative spaces for local residents. Establishing a new cultural district for London that will generate a sense of community has always been a key focus for our shareholders in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station and will continue to be an very important pillar as the neighbourhood grows.”
The Turbine Theatre’s inaugural season opens with Torch Song, presented by Bill Kenwright, a new revival of Harvey Fierstein’s dizzyingly funny and deeply touching landmark play, directed by Olivier Award winning Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom, On The Town). Torch Song opens the doors at The Turbine Theatre on 22 August, running until 13 October.
