Small World Theatre is an artist-led company with many decades of commitment to Arts and Sustainability

Small World Theatre has 4 main streams of activity:

We create performances: Producing and performing our own original shows and events: creating theatre performances that can tour small and mid scale venues. Street shows and site-specific spectaculars often using myth and legend as well as intimate, environmentally sensitive experiences.

Running our own venue: We present a range of arts and performance events, mentoring emerging artists/performers, hosting conferences, community events, classes and workshops. The building is an accessible, welcoming space that provides a model of sustainability for other organisations striving towards a zero carbon future.

Implementing projects and facilitating workshops: these are developed and delivered in house, in the community by us and for other agencies. Designing and delivering international projects in arts and theatre for development. We facilitate workshops, design and deliver our own accredited training programmes and also for other organisations. These programmes build skills and confidence with people of different ages and abilities. We are pioneers in developing and using methodologies now increasingly called SEED SCALE

We work creatively in education:
We work with primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, teacher training institutions and universities offering programmes of training and workshops for teachers and students. We create educational touring theatre in Welsh and English that are accompanied by dedicated workshops, curriculum mapping and teaching resources.
We are an experienced AGORED Accreditation Centre working with creative education to help people of all ages and abilities gain meaningful, life changing qualifications.

International projects

Small World Theatre are experienced exponents of life changing Theatre in aid and development. Placing Culture and Theatre at the centre of development. We use theatre as a means of communication, helping focus aid and assisting communities to help determine their own development. We feel this helps with increasing the effectiveness and sustainability of aid. As Small World Theatre sort of implies we are not a massive corporate company and chose to operate on a project-by-project basis or with the support of larger agencies or institutions such as the British Council the U.N. etc. We feel that we have made a big impact and our projects have been effective and indeed won awards. Small World Theatre projects draw on our 40 years of development experience both in UK and overseas. Having worked in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe we have gained extensive development experience and pioneered processes that use cultural factors to deal with change. This is now often called SEED SCALE.
