Artistic vision

Grey and Green. Concrete and chlorophyll. Old ashes and new shoots.

The sleepy and the wide-awake. Nurture and nature. Science and art.

London Grey & Green is an ambitious, young theatre company which aims to explore the world around us through such terms, keeping an open artistic remit. We’re interested in intelligent new writing, provocative political theatre and evocative physical theatre.  We like lo-fi design and big spectacles. We love music and dance.

We are committed to the environment and to helping change the current gender imbalance on the stage by providing many and varied roles for women.

‘London Grey & Green Theatre Company will go far’ – Female Arts

 

Artistic policies

– To only present work with female performers in at least 50% of the roles or having at least 50% of the stage-time.  Why we do this can be explained, in part, by recent statistics produced by Ipsos Mori for the Society of London Theatre, and The Guardian:

– There is a 2:1 ratio of male to female parts on the London stage
– There is a 4:1 ratio of female to male graduates leaving university performing arts courses
– Women theatre-goers outnumber men 2:1

For more information, please read this excellent article by Charlotte Higgings.

– To minimise our environmental damage.  We can only start small but we promise that we will only use recycled paper and card for our own marketing materials, and reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible.

– We have signed up to the Protecting Actors Fringe Charter, helping to ensure all cast & crew operate under safe and fair working conditions.
