Our Mission

For the classical cannon to be experienced and explored in politically charged and theatrically daring ensemble productions by a truly diverse audience and artists, representative of our world.

Through workshops, research and development and audience engagement, we ensure our productions are sustainable and retains impact long after the curtain falls.

We are committed to reinvestigating, revitalising and reimaging classic stories making them accessible for a contemporary audience.

We seek to reach those who have barriers to experiencing live theatre by celebrating cultural diversity, expanding audience’s and artist’s horizons.

We celebrate artists from all backgrounds and experiences with an emphasis on ensemble, working collaboratively and collectively.

We acknowledge and celebrate that we are all richer if everyone has access to great theatre.
