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.
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.
We provide creative programmes and one-to-one support to help participants develop their skills & explore potential career opportunities. We offer a range of support options for those still in education through to the long-term unemployed.
We have been providing FREE high quality open access youth theatres on estates in Hackney since 1998. The programme has engaged thousands of participants who do not traditionally have access to arts opportunities.
We regularly respond to requests from statutory and voluntary sector organisations to use our innovative theatre approach to tackle complex issues
We have a track-record of creating excellent work with older people including productions toured to lunch/social clubs and sheltered housing venues, and inter-generational participatory projects.
We have been engaging with excluded young people in Hackney for almost 20 years. Using drama and filmmaking to enable participants to develop confidence, communication and self-knowledge.
