about us

Great Leap Forward is a dynamic new company which provides companies and artists with the means to capitalise on national and international touring opportunities.

We are delighted to represent a world-class portfolio of work by exciting and innovative artists.

A Cultural Revolution!

Who we are:
Great Leap Forward is run by Kayte Potter and Jennie Green, who have many years of experience working internationally on a range of acclaimed productions including Tap Dogs, Cats, Slava’s Snowshow, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake as part of Back Row Productions / Clear Channel Entertainment.

We work with companies, producers and presenters to maximise on international touring potential.  We believe that the most successful productions are those that manage to reach both a domestic and international audience, and at its best, the experience of international touring can help support the generation of new work at home.   

What we do:
For companies in the UK, we can assess existing or developing product and help to position your company and productions worldwide. We have the ability to not only book and negotiate international seasons and tours, but also the facility to general manage your production and to protect and develop it within new markets.

For companies that have already toured overseas, we can expand your current touring potential and develop and service key strategic relationships worldwide.

For companies with less international experience, we can provide advice and consultancy services in addition to tour booking, co-ordination and general management.

For companies looking to establish links in the UK, we can provide a touring strategy and management service suited to your needs.
