LLL PRODUCTIONS is a live literature production company that develops touring productions with writers. The organization began as a promoter of art and literature events acquiring a reputation for inventive, eclectic programming, bringing together spoken word with performance, music, film and visual art. Since 2007 LLL has focused on developing interdisciplinary performances with writers. Key works include 'Dementia Diaries' by Maria Jastrzebska (which toured to university schools of medicine and other venues with a Wellcome Trust Arts Award). Socially engaged work includes installations, such as 'Polska by the Sea' (Eastbourne Station, 2009) and 'Penned Up', a literature festival in a prison.
LLL Productions has had an international outlook from its early days. The company has a number of current works available for international touring and is also keen to develop new international partnerships for bringing new work to the UK.
LLL's approach to making live literature includes a strongly cross-artform multimedia approach. Artistic Director, Mark C. Hewitt, is an experienced director who has developed productions with a range of writers and can extend this knowledge and experience to support the development of new work in other countries. As a programming organisation, LLL Productions, has the willingness, experience and capacity to accommodate live literature performances with significant production values or to curate high quality cabaret-style events at which international writers and performers can be showcased.
