SAVVY's remit is to bring people together from all backgrounds as artists and audiences in a celebration of how cultural activity creates community.
We are driven by a desire for artistic excellence as well as a belief that participation in cultural activities should be a right for all, and has the potential to change and enhance lives.
Our work is genuinely ‘inclusive’ bringing together people from all backgrounds as participants and audiences in a unique way that provides an exemplary model of practice for other community arts organisations.
The company was founded in 2007 by the current Artistic Director, who wanted to challenge audience perceptions of what participatory theatre is all about. 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.SAVVY Theatre Company
SAVVY Theatre Company relies on project funding, ticket sales and contributions to our various campaigns, in order to maintain and develop our ongoing programme of work. Your support will help us to continue our work with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of the community, enabling us to keep fees to a minimum and offer free places to those in financial need.
