Overseas

When we began our International Theatre for Development work some 10 years ago, we battled for money and opportunities and the work was small scale and pioneering, beginning with the establishment of the Vidya theatre company in India.  Over the years recognition of the value of this work has increased demand and we are now at a stage where we have been contacted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, United Nations, The British Council and Save the Children to start substantial projects for them . Such organisations now see the potential of theatre to engage with social problems or post-disaster situations and initiate discussion with affected communities to find solutions and "alternative futures".
