Everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s your own experiences as one voice in a creative community project, or the story of your organisation’s strategy, vision and action plan. We’re here to help you tell it.
Live theatre and performance is a powerful storytelling medium, enabling collective experiences where we share our stories, and listen to, and see ourselves, in the stories of others. We produce professional and community theatre, dance and other live work in both traditional venues and site-specific locations.
Digital Creative Development
Barriers and boundaries between sectors in the creative industries are breaking down as theatre productions produce screen based, or podcast outcomes or merge with computer gaming technology to create new audience experiences. We’ve produced film versions of live theatre, podcast walking tours, live streamed events and festivals, to name a few. We bring a working knowledge of skills, rights management, IP considerations etc to your digital or virtual project or idea.
We’ve know all about project and production management and have delivered ambitious international projects along with complex community focused programmes. We know about things like building teams, managing cash flow, child protection, equality, diversity and inclusion, health and safety and the importance of delivering on time and to budget.
