Ours is a theatre of story-telling visuals, transformational design, magic, comedy, music, physical performance, puppetry, multi-media and most importantly thrills.
We are drawn to stories that explore extremes of behaviour and taboos in the contemporary world: often unbelievable true tales that delve into the bizarre, glorious, exhilarating and macabre. The stories we tell offer audiences opportunities to engage in live experiences that may in small (or large) ways enhance or challenge their understanding of the world.
