What We Do

We are a Sheffield-based theatre company that creates projects with communities about the things that matter to them. 

We use theatre and the arts to:

EXPLORE community voices and experiences through workshops and interviews;

CREATE performances and interactive exhibitions.

Mission Statement

Cohesion and Understanding

Our work celebrates different voices and experiences. We believe that theatre and the arts can transform the way we see ourselves, our relationships with others and the world around us, leading to better understanding and, ultimately, more peaceful societies.

Awareness of social injustice to inspire and inform change


How we work







People come first and foremost. We strive to make sure everything we do is imbued with a sense of care. Through long-term connections with people and communities we prioritise human relationships in the work we create together.
