What we're up to

All of our projects and productions have been placed on hold due to Covid 19. We are using this time as a period of deep reflection, taking stock of events, asking questions and making sense of where and how our energy and resources can be best used. We are in the process of making difficult decisions of when and how to postpone our productions and will keep you informed as we know more. For our next big show Peaceophobia (scheduled for September 2020) we will follow guidelines to decide when it is best to go ahead. Stay in touch and see you on the other side!
