Since our beginnings in 1995 we have specialised in site-specific and location theatre although we have also produced work for the stage. The company has received 31 awards and many more nominations covering all aspects of our work, from acting, writing, design and use of music to stage management and technical expertise.
Some of the more challenging and unusual locations we have performed in include a boat-builders’ island in Norway, the land-side and air-side passenger areas of Edinburgh International Airport, the Informatics Building of the University of Edinburgh, a former jute mill in Dundee and a massive oil-rig manufacturing shed in Dundee, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo, the former General Security building in Beirut, a working cancer hospital in Jordan, the old city morgue in Cork, Debenhams department store in Edinburgh, ten metres underwater in Belfast’s Lagan Weir, a haunted underground street in Edinburgh, The London Dungeon, parks, gardens, playgrounds and fields all over Britain and Ireland, our local pub, The Barony Bar, on Edinburgh’s Broughton Street, the EICA (Europe’s largest indoor climbing arena) and a huge oil-rig manufacturing shed in Port of Dundee.
We have also performed on stages the length and breadth of Scotland from Inverness to Melrose including the King’s & Traverse theatres in Edinburgh, Eden Court, Carnegie Hall Dunfermline, Adam Smith, Kirkcaldy and many more.
We have co-produced with the Traverse Theatre, Dundee Rep Theatre, National Theatre of Scotland, The Almeida Theatre, London, Lung Ha Theatre Company, Stellar Quines, Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Burns and a That Festival.
Internationally, we have had two European Capital of Culture commissions, for Cork 2005 and Stavanger 2008, delivered an extensive programme of work for the British Council in the Middle East, appeared twice as part of Edinburgh International Festival, many times at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and performed as part of Imaginate, Edinburgh International Book Festival, Edinburgh International Science Festival and during Cork’s Fringe (now Midsummer) Festival and the Belfast Festival at Queens.
