Slingshot Theatre is a young emerging company, established in 2010 to produce exciting, dynamic, unpredictable and memorable new theatre through releasing the creative power and vigorous energy of the actor. We seek to innovate and invent, to go beyond the expectations of our audience and to re-ignite a passion for live theatre in the UK. Our buzzwords are physical comedy, mask, improvisation and new writing.
We tour our productions across the UK to both arts houses and community venues, aiming not exclusively, but especially at 14-19 year olds, otherwise known as ‘the deserted demographic’. Out of our goal of performance springs our educational workshops for young people and laboratories for theatre professionals in our foundational discipline, the Commedia dell’ Arte.
Finally, we seek to benefit the UK with theatre work it otherwise would not have the opportunity to see, at a price it can afford. As a non-for-profit Limited Company we survive on support from arts funding, grants and individual donations.
