WE CONNECT URGENT VOICES AND IMPORTANT WORLD PERSPECTIVES
Our vision is of a socially just and environmentally stable world, rooted in wild creativity. We believe live art holds the power to change the world, through radical connection and communication.
As live art producers we bring people together with the bravest artistic voices to create extraordinary experiences and opportunities in unexpected places. All our work stands on the three pillars of people, place and planet, and its magic and transformative potential emanates from the intersection of the three.
We exist to provide time and space for artists, audiences and collaborators to pause, think, dream, reimagine our place in the world and to do things they have not yet conceived.
We are committed to seeking out un-heard voices, challenging preconceptions and institutionalised practices, to ensure the world’s most urgent stories are heard. We invite exceptional local, national and international artists to share stories that inspire, surprise and act as a catalyst for change.
We sit at the heart of a network of live art organisations at the forefront of innovative contemporary arts practice. Inviting the unexpected into our daily lives, our live art works can appear anywhere: from theatres and galleries, to midnight streets, moonlit forests and candlelit caves.
We welcome you to explore some of the provocative and memorable events and experiences we have curated and produced over the last 20 years. Enjoy, meander, feel and feed on what you find.
