THE COMPANY

Crying in the Wilderness Productions (CITWP) is dedicated to producing ground-breaking productions which are anchored to an intercultural philosophical practice.

Our goal is to form a diverse conglomeration of partnerships and a critical mass that will inspire greater connectivity between the company and its audience.


THEATRE OF THE SOUL

Theatre of the Soul is a multi-disciplinary theatrical style which adopts a Pan continental approach to creating and delivering our productions. The integration of individual disciplines into our practise is perceived not as separate strands but as composites of a single vocabulary that explores the transitory nature of existence within multiple contexts.

With the completion of a number of productions and research and development projects, our theatrical invention has been hailed by critics as; 

..stunning, breathtaking, truly wonderful, comprehensively original, gripping theatre, spell binding, intelligent, fascinating, cerebral and visceral..

OUR MISSION

The mission of our company is to evolve our theatrical practice, Theatre of the Soul, which inspires a greater appreciation of the work of diverse artists from a multidisciplinary and a multi-media perspective.

We also aim to increase the potential for greater access in the arts to marginalised groups and communities through partnerships, collaborations, training and employment.
