This is SAVVY
SAVVY Theatre is an award-winning company, creating ambitious, inclusive productions and theatre experiences that bring different groups of people together.
As an inclusive theatre company, it is important that we provide a range of opportunities for everyone to Take Part, whether it's performing in one of our ongoing weekly groups, as an artist working or training with us, a participant or partner in one of our special projects, or as audience coming to experience our shows.
The company was founded in 2007 by the current Artistic Director, who wanted to challenge audience and cultural perceptions of participatory theatre. Going to the theatre shouldn't be a chore.
It shouldn't be something you are forced to do because you happen to know someone in the cast.
It should be invigorating, memorable, exciting, challenging, uplifting and fun.
It should make you want to come back.
We are committed to developing innovative, ensemble-based theatre shows, special projects and artist training programmes, that build the bridge to engagement and provide access to quality work.
SAVVY is a place where everyone is welcomed and involved and trained.
SAVVY Theatre's vision is to use the power of theatre and shared creation to deepen understanding and empathy towards others, and as a force to steer change and develop inclusive communities.
