How we work
As six people who have worked together more or less continually for 30 years we share a big history and a lot of skills, conversations and ideas. We also share input into and responsibility for the work we produce.
Since we also like new approaches and ideas we often invite other creative people to work with us
With a few exceptions we don’t work with a ready-made text so making a show starts with us in a rehearsal room - discussing ideas, raiding the dressing-up box, trying a line of dialogue, playing a soundtrack, improvising a scene until something starts to stick. Then we keep developing the material – we experiment with it, debate it, videotape it, watch it, adapt and edit it before trying it on an audience which can open up a whole new set of questions.
