We all share a creative passion for raw, subversive, and thought-provoking work.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
for The Optic Trilogy (2018):
"I very much enjoyed this performance, it was thoughtful, beautifully designed... The use of physical theatre added thoughtfully to the symbolism of the play, particularly the shadow play with reaching for the star, and the moments of shadows behind the screen as well.
I felt this was an excellent production, with a real vision and beautifully, clean aesthetic. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and greatly appreciated the opportunity to see something that made me think so deeply."
