Based in Exeter and the South West we make visual, playful & engaging work.
People are at the centre of our work, we seek to engage non-traditional audiences & to make the theatre a welcoming & joyous space for everyone. Our work combines live music, storytelling, physical theatre, mixed media, poetry and a healthy dose of silliness and play to create work that resonates for those who see it.
