Soya the Cow takes the audience on a philosophical walk through the city. Soya the Cow invites a change of perspective that challenges visual habits and self-image.

THE PLAGUE DOGS
Shadow Puppet Show for Schools
An shadow puppet adaptation of Richard Adams' The Plague Dogs. Designed for both primary and secondary school students, the show is accompanied by a puppetry workshop and scheme of work. This project explores the lives of animals raised for testing, and their agency for life.
We are a new UK theatre company focussed on building a world where every being is valued as an individual, with protected and respected rights to a life free from dominion. Through performance we aim to shift cultural narrative to involve symbiotic relationships with all animal species.
Through theatre performances, theatre in education, research events and artist development initiatives, we encompass a new approach to theatre and social change - with creative practice leading culture to a liberated world.
