Green Ginger makes award-winning theatre for both streets and stage and offers accessible educational workshops tailored to suit any age group or ability. The company was founded in 1978 with the aim of creating innovative and accessible theatre for all ages and to tour its productions and workshops throughout the UK and abroad. Since its formation, the Company has had a commitment to puppetry in the widest sense and its practitioners animate sets and props, light, shadows and special effects to realise its surreal and absurd imagery.
Green Ginger acts as an umbrella organisation under which freelance theatre makers work together to write, design, teach and perform. Its members regularly collaborate with organisations such as National Assembly for Wales, Welsh National Opera and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and the Company receives invitations for commissions and consultancies for stage, TV, film and community projects.
The Company has its roots in the spontaneity of street theatre. 25 years of outdoor performance all over the world has informed the accessibility of the Company’s indoor theatre work.
Green Ginger is excited by the confirmation of its core-team line-up for RUST. Director Flick Fernando from Company F/Z, performers Marc Parrett of Stuff & Nonsense, Vic Llewellyn (a regular Desperate Men performer) will join Green Ginger regulars James Osborne & Chris Pirie.
Green Ginger receives funding from Arts Council England and Arts Council Wales. Plus touring support from British Council.
