Board of Directors
Our work interweaves live performance with film and installations to create extraordinary journeys that are ambitious in scale, visually layered and popular with audiences wherever they are performed. Previous works have taken place in a variety of physical and architectural contexts from the former Co-op department store in Brighton, to an underground abattoir in Clerkenwell, to a disused paper factory in Moscow, to the Old Treasury Building in Perth, Australia.
Since its formation in 1999, the company has played a key role in the evolution of site-responsive work in the UK and beyond.
These days, “site-specific” is a label often slung around any play enacted in an uncomfortable space. dreamthinkspeak’s marvellous work is different. It truly draws on a particular place to conjure a subject. It makes the buildings outside become vibrant with undisclosed possibilities.
dreamthinkspeak have been quietly reinventing site-specific theatre for some years now, creating walk-through shows all over the world, from a Moscow paper factory to a hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
dreamthinkspeak is an associate artist of Brighton Dome and Festival.
