Wake The Beast creates contemporary theatrical events and experiences that are playful, political and important. We bring wild, irreverent and unexpected adventures to new places, spaces and faces.
Collaboration is at the heart of our work. We are part of a network of artists, activists and communities locally, nationally and internationally who challenge important social issues through theatre.
This beastly congregation aims to ensure each event belongs to audiences, participants and contributors equally with each having a stake in the subject and outcome.
Circus/ immersive theatre/ Irish dancing / the spoons/ magic/ new writing/ song/ the tin whistle/drag/ spectacle/ comedy/ karaoke/puppetry/dance/ rhythm are some of the weapons we use in our work.
We believe every human is creative and has a story to tell, our work aims to spark that creativity by helping to wake the beast within and give it a platform to be heard.
Wake The Beast create quality theatrical experiences that are truthful, relevant and disruptive and can make change feel possible….
bravely, boldly, beastly ….
