We are a collective of arts professionals, each with an average of ten years in the creative industries. Our experience as individuals has informed our mission as a company – to create thought provoking new work that is gender-balanced and challenges stereotypes, whilst generating opportunities to showcase the work in an engaging, festival style. We believe that people getting together and sharing communal experiences can facilitate change.
We seek to collaborate locally and internationally across a range of artistic fields producing work that engages and excites audiences whilst showing equality in practice.
