Belfast Bred takes gold!

Green & Blue World Premiere Tour!

Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. Based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers, this new production fuses theatre and film to look at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a line in the ground.

Kabosh tours to South Africa and Rwanda!

We are delighted to announce that we will attend the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown South Africa and the Ubumuntu Arts Festival in Kigali, Rwanda, in July, where we will present our production of, Those You Pass On The Street, as part of the festivals' programme and also facilitate a number of workshops and masterclasses with other international practitioners as to how theatre and art can be used as a positive force in the peacebuilding process. The production will also be performed in Belfast, Coalisland and Carnlough later this month.

The Box brings to life the archive of WWI nurse Olive Swanzy

Whilst serving during World War I, Co. Down Nurse Olive Swanzy kept an archive of her time spent in the war through a collection of poems, sketches, cartoons, stories and drawings given to her by the soldiers in her care and collected in her autograph books. Alongside this she also kept a record of her own experiences through a wealth of beautiful watercolours which document her time at war. Together they form an incredible picture of real people during extraordinary times.
