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 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 provide a range of performances and workshops to enrich and support the school curriculum. Using innovative approaches, we aim to tackle key issues and increase achievement of young people.
****We provide creative interventions and one-to-one support to help participants to realise their dreams & explore potential career opportunities. We work with those still in education, preventing them from becoming NEET, through to the long-term unemployed.
We have been engaging with excluded young people in Hackney for almost 20 years.
