Style and Practice
Travelling Light is a sector leader in the field of Theatre for Young Audiences and we strive for best practice in every way. We recognise that making great theatre takes time and care and we invest in Research and Development to try new ideas and find the best stories which resonate with our audiences. We enable young people to have a real and genuine input into the work we make and we invite them to challenge us and take our work in new directions.
Travelling Light presents productions of the highest quality, whilst also striving to experiment in form and extend the boundaries of live art for children. To this end, we build creative alliances with the most exciting theatre practitioners, artists and companies. We are committed to opening the doors to new artistic talent, seeking new collaborations, exploring and testing new models and create exciting new productions with great stories at their heart.
We value the artistic quality of both our professional and participatory programme equally. We do not distinguish between the two in terms of care and strive for excellence. We firmly believe that children and young people deserve great art that is innovative, accessible and of the now. We also believe that in order to create this work children’s voices must be championed and their involvement authentic in the making, designing and planning processes.
