We make theatre that breaks down old stories that are no longer fit for purpose, making space for new stories to break through.
As Báyò Akómoláfé puts it… “all stories are risks” – they can support us, guide us, strengthen us… and they can trap us, blind us, limit us.
We hope that the theatre we make and the conversations we open up will contribute to composting the old and dying stories that are taking life to the brink, and support co-creation of conditions for new stories, so that all of us can thrive.
Our teacher is the humble beetle, essential to the health of ecosystems – literally composting shit and debris to make healthy conditions for new life.

We are currently focused on touring our solo theatre show Transparency – a story about growing up northern, working class and trans. We are breaking down the stories of ‘pro’ and ‘anti’ trans views to reveal the real and complex web of human experiences and relationships underneath. Find out more at transparencysolo.info.
