About Us

Theatre that makes a difference

Tangle’s award-winning touring productions, education programme, and artist development projects have provided a vital access point for diverse and often isolated communities, artists and audiences to come together. We have a particular specialism of touring to and working in rural areas where there is little inter-cultural interface.


Award Winning Theatre

We’ve produced 4 touring productions, from the the TMA Award-winning Everyman in 2009 to the sell out Doctor Faustus in 2018, supported the career development of over 300 artists and commissioned more than 30 writers and musicians.

We aim to increase cultural understanding

Our year-round programme helps grow creative and collaborative spaces where world views, languages and customs are positively championed within the UK’s evolving communities. By building bridges between different cultures, we aim to increase social cohesion and cultural understanding across the UK.


Rejuvenating the classics

Our creative programme operates in three distinct areas: Productions, Amplify, and Discovery projects. Our touring theatre productions focus on rejuvenating classic texts with a distinct aesthetic – combining some Western theatre approaches with the township- style approach of Southern Africa.

I appreciate Tangle’s vision to set a positive example in building strong relationships between cultures, and to engender a collaborative and creative environment for professional theatre makers to come together, network, support each other and develop material.
