A HUGE THANK YOU to all our supporters for helping to make our recent crowd funding campaign a resounding success. 

March 2016

We’ve just launched our first crowd funding campaign on https://startsomegood.com/Natasha if you can kindly support our new work Natasha – A triptych – studies in experimental opera.

The campaign is open until April 14th to pledge your support for this exciting production and grab yourself some tickets and other great rewards for forthcoming performances in 2016.

Natasha written by Jane Fox is a libretto which explores aspects of slavery, the sex trade and human trafficking. In 2015 we held a successful research and development period for one section of the libretto; Shelter. This period included a performance for industry professionals and a Q&A discussion. Shelter was supported financially by The Arts Council of Wales.

Ashley John Long composed the part-graphic score for Shelter. We are developing Natasha – A triptych – studies in experimental opera for public performances in 2016.

Butcher with original score composed by James Flight was performed in-the-round with tiered seating which was constructed as a circus top. The performers examined audience members with probes and sculptural appendages and film of DNA and surgical incisions were projected on the red drapes.


I admire your great courage in tackling such a contentious and frightening subject. Butcher has been one of the most memorable theatrical performances I have ever seen. Brenda Oakes
