Paul is a member of the Advisory Board of Global Futures, an independent think tank that believes Britain can only succeed in the future as a vibrant and open nation reaching out to the world. His role is to focus on the impact the current political climate is having on arts and young people.
Roseby has also pioneered a ground-breaking international cultural exchange programme at National Youth Theatre and directed the London 2012 Team Welcome Ceremonies. He also secured the opportunity for the company to perform at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Handover, singing the National Anthem to an audience of over 1.5 billion and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. This programme has also included large scale productions and theatre education workshops in Saudi Arabia and cities around China including Beijing, involving local young people and NYT members.
Coming Up Next : Flood by Rory Mullarkey with the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation.
As one of the pioneering organisations for youth arts globally, NYT will continue to expand its international outreach in 2018 working with Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) on the world premiere of Flood by Rory Malarkey and directed by NYT Associate Artist Joel Scott. NYT makes its Hong Kong debut with the brand new dystopian work Flood, commissioned by Paul Roseby for NYT in 2011 and staged in a collaborative production with Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation and ArtisTree! A bold and visceral telling of what happens when land turns to water, the performance featuring young talent from HKYAF combines elements of contemporary physical theatre, music and voice, Cantonese song, object manipulation and video imagery. Performances 20 to 22 September 2018
