BACK TO BACK THEATRE
Back to Back Theatre creates new forms of contemporary theatre imagined from the minds and experiences of a unique ensemble of actors with a disability, giving voice to the social and political issues that speak to all people.
Through a process of research, improvisation and scripting, and collaboration between the ensemble, Artistic Director and invited guests, new work is realised over extended timeframes.
Celebrating its 25th birthday in 2012, Back to Back Theatre has developed a reputation for its unique ability to present the issues of our times with a distinct outsider focus.
