beautiful creatures theatre
We are a creative organisation, who specialise in the development of original physical and visual theatre, big and small. Alongside our professional outdoor touring work, we collaborate extensively within the community to provide new and transformative experiences for audiences, participants and young people.
Producing original performances
We love sculpting live performance and are drawn to physical and visual theatres, multi-disciplinary practices and work in unusual spaces. Our productions range in scale from intimate audio-visual experiences for one like The Dreambox, to large-scale participatory projects, like The Tipping Point. We have toured throughout the UK, and to Europe with our outdoor work, and created bespoke performances for specific places in our own community
Tailor participatory experiences
We frequently invite participants to join us in the development of a project, and we gain as much from working with new people as they do from the creative and practical experience. Whether you are new to performance and responding to an open call, or are part of an existing community group who are developing new work with us, we will find ways to make the experience as fulfilling and unique as possible.
Developing outdoor arts in Berkshire
Outdoor arts bring people together, unite communities and help to make live performance accessible to those who may not have had the opportunity to see physical and visual theatre before. Through our partnerships with local organisations, we will continue to raise the profile and reach of outdoor arts and enable more people in Reading and Berkshire to benefit from contemporary performance in their community.
Providing training, mentorship and employment
Our creative team have extensive experience working in education from primary to post-graduate to adults, and we are firm believers in the importance of positive education and life long learning. Through our provision of global educational projects, workshops, learning resources, mentoring and employment opportunities we aim to support emerging makers and artists of the future and provide a safe space for people to gain experience, knowledge and skills.
