The Old Church, an arts venue in Stoke Newington based in the only surviving Elizabethan church in London, has announced the first group of Associate Artists. 

The six artists, who span choral music, opera, theatre and performance art, will devise new shows to be premiered at The Old Church, before touring around the UK. These include Esmeralda Conde Ruiz, an innovative choral conductor who pioneers interdisciplinary work that integrates site-specific visual and sound and she will be producing a massed performance of over 100 female singers in The Old Church cemetery, and opera company OperaUpClose which is developing a fully-staged English version of Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, the historical tragedy about a fictitious confrontation between Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I.

The other artists are Tej Adeleye, who is devising a sound installation using music and storytelling building on her research, theatre-maker Claire Gaydon, Gobbledegook which creates interactive experiences for families, and composer and award-winning skin decorator Natalie Sharp.
