Inclusive Interactive Imaginative

We involve communities in making theatre that inspires wellbeing, breaks down barriers and engages people in the process of personal and social change.

About us

A Stage to Perform

We work with young people and communities in Hackney and East London to ensure access for all to arts activities that break down barriers and engage people in debate. Immediate Theatre’s vision is for a society where questioning, articulate and motivated people create and collaborate to build thriving communities.

About us

A Stage to Perform

We work in partnership to develop work that is:

  • Inclusive - working at the grass roots and celebrating diversity.
  • Interactive - involving communities throughout the creative process.
  • Imaginative - finding new ways to engage with vital issues.

We believe in the transformative power of theatre and the arts to all our lives and the importance of giving people a voice.

Creating a real relationship with the communities in which we work is at the heart of what we do.

Our work is particularly developed with and for marginalised young people.
