What We Do


Contact is a dynamic space where young people, artists, and staff boldly re-imagine how a theatre for young people should look and feel. Our programme is fluid, flexible and diverse. We welcome theatre, art, music, spoken word, dance, and DJs into all of our spaces.

We are not simply a producing house or a presenting venue but a space where artistic experiments are explored, developed, and completed. We have an expansive notion of what theatre can be and we embrace partnership working with organisations and individuals both locally and internationally.

Contact’s three main programming aims are:

  1. Present an inspiring programme that presents young people with a wide range of artistic provocations, artistic sensibilities, and influences.
  2. Present exciting new and emerging companies to inspire young peoples progression
  3. Present an intergenerational programme of accomplished artists that raise aspirations and demonstrate artistic and professional longevity.
