Hello and welcome!


We hope that you enjoy spending time scrolling through our work and looking at how the curious directive ensemble thinks about making theatre.

We’ve created what we hope is a hub which will give you an idea of all the different projects and ideas in which we believe.

We’re an open source company and we’re keen for you to participate/donate to an ever increasing source of inspiration for science inspired theatre.

We always respond to thoughts, enquiries, questions and ideas – so feel free to get in touch whenever you fancy it.

See you soon,

the curious directive
