We want to inspire people through the performing arts to impact the world for the better. We do this by creating high-quality physical outdoor, indoor and digital performances. These performances pour light on difficult social issues where dreams are sometimes broken and people often failed. Always moving, creating change, we want you to also feel the emotion, the rawness of social injustice as much as we do. But also the beauty and the explosion, the stretch of every muscle, the pull of every turn.
Through performances, residencies and workshops we explore issues through our unique creative processes, raising awareness, building skills, encouraging confidence and promoting mental and physical health. From our base in Oxford we work with all ages around the UK as well as with affected communities.
