a documentary web series about theatre and community 

Stage Left introduces viewers to the performances, artists, theatre-makers, and communities that are making work in places that go largely unnoticed by the mainstream.

Stage Left examines the impact of theatre and performance on local communities. Each episode of Stage Left investigates a theatre company, performance tradition or performative ritual that is actively steeped in a particular community. Through highlighting the work of artists who are actively using theatre to engage, challenge and inspire their own communities, we hope to inspire and activate our viewers.
