Leicester's Curve theatre has appointed three companies as associates at the venue.

Aakash Odedra Company, which specialises in Indian dance, comedy duo New Art Club and touring theatre company Metro-Boulot-Dodo have been named as the venue's first associate artists.

Curve artistic director Paul Kerryson said: “Over the past five years, Curve has supported the work of emerging artists from across the East Midlands through an extensive programme of residencies, commissions and collaborations. As Curve celebrates its fifth Birthday, we are now delighted to be formalising our relationship with these three diverse and acclaimed local companies as Curve’s first official associate artists.

"Over the next two years each company will be working alongside Curve associate director Suba Das to deliver new projects for Curve’s theatre spaces - including Curve’s upcoming fifth birthday open day – and for venues across the UK.”
