We are committed to making multi-disciplinary, multi-media live theatre that is directly informed by the personalities and skills of the individuals working within the company at any given time. Our non-autocratic ethos is still as relevant today as it was at the inception of the company, and, in order to retain our cutting edge and innovative style of inquiry, we maintain a balance of creative input between the longer-standing members of the company and new artists. An eclectic core group of artists continues to draw a diverse range of practitioners into the mix. This is a crucial part of the process of generating and exploiting new material created through inter-disciplinary collisions and tensions. We have a commitment to creating theatre in its widest sense, embracing emergent technologies whilst remaining sensitive to the human scale.
All People Show productions are devised. Sometimes a show is created from scratch, starting only with the skills, personalities and ideas of a particular group at the beginning of a devising period. At other times an artist may have a specific idea they wish to develop prior to the main devising period: they may either be commissioned to conduct their own research or to work with another artist/s to experiment with material.
