“Kate’s artistic approach is eclectic and improvised – changing moment to moment to adapt to the mobile atmospheres and diffe

rent challenges happening in the settings of workshops and rehearsals. An area of real strengths an artist here – I think – is in the way Kate uses humour, often of a surreal and carnivalesque quality – the work is rarely delivered in an earnest, issue-based or naturalistic format – rather, it builds on the other-worldy imaginations and humour of the participants  themselves to communicate experience in a way that engages and entertains.”  Jenny Hughes, Senior Lecturer in Drama, Manchester University

small performance adventures is developing out of  meeting talented and amazing collaborators with lived experience of addiction, mental health and criminal justice systems. We are beginning to:

  • Create joyful and playful performance and performative activity with and for people who have been labelled or have experienced trauma in ways that have prevented them participating in the artistic life of the community.
  • Provide employment opportunities for those with lived experience of addiction, mental health and criminal justice system.

    Create truly inclusive performance for all.


    Develop ideas and partnerships that blur the boundaries between disciplines and genres.
