We are a group of East 15 graduates who live in a social bubble of creativity in East London. 

Together, we aim to create socially conscious and daring pieces of theatre that will leave an audience wanting more.

Thanks to our versatile team of artists we are able to develop our own unique style that includes, but is not limited to: 

avant-garde choreography, original music, aesthetic visuals and enthralling stories.
