The company is dedicated to creating original, innovative and exciting theatre. Known for our striking visual aesthetic and innovative use of props, puppetry and live music we are constantly pushing ourselves to explore new ways of telling stories and immersing ourselves and our audiences in the weird and wonderful worlds created by our shows. Our artistic policy is to make theatre we love and theatre that excites us, and we hope in turn excites our audiences.
