Grand Theatre of Lemmings/Manningtree Essex
Zap Art has been working with the Grand Theatre of Lemmings since the beginning of 2008 on a ZEPA training/development project. Phase 1 was to help develop the company to be able to work within a European partnership and develop transnational artistic projects. We are now entering phase 2 of this project.
