We’re back with a September update!


Having sadly missed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Megan got to see Zoo Co Theatre Company and their excellent show Sirens at Greenwich Theatre in early September - Fusing creative captions, projections and visual storytelling to create a modern and accessible take on the Greek myth, the show tells the story of three sirens who find themselves washed up in Hastings in 2018, and the ensuing chaos that follows. Catch it if you can!


Arts Council England bid

We submitted an ACE application in September for the first phase of development of our aerial Medea, and have our fingers firmly crossed for a positive outcome!

Support for Medea

We have begun exciting conversations with a number of venues and programmers about support for the show, and we are always interested in developing new relationships and talking about collaborations too - For commissioning, programming or booking enquires contact Megan at This email address is being protected from spambots.
