Drawing on theatre traditions from both the East and the West, their work has been described as magical, poetic and superbly imaginative.


Kuba and Rachel are also visiting directors at Salzburg Landestheater and recently directed Paulas Reisen, based on a children's book by Paul Maar.

Synopsis


This is Olive's story.


I'm not sure she would like me to tell it but I'm going to anyway.


Dreams Die Hard travels through many landscapes and summons ghosts from the past on a journey towards truth and tolerance.


From London to Cyprus and way beyond.


Inspired by a diary from 1945/6 written by the performer's grandmother, the production weaves together projections and live shadow puppetry; war time politics with Brexit time politics; the drama of 1940's London with the reality of 1980's Liverpool.


Questions of vulnerability, national identity, discrimination and national boundaries are raised in a new international production for our increasingly intolerant times.
