Mandala – joining people together to empower, enlighten and transform.
Mandala Theatre Company uses the power of performance to change young lives, build communities and foster social justice.
We are a diversity-led company creating exciting new theatre with social justice at its heart. We give a voice to those whose stories are not heard – and give those stories life.
Our work connects people and brings them together, because we believe that the arts are a force for change.
These are our four guiding principles:
- To make visceral theatre using social justice as a creative catalyst.
- To employ, train and nurture young performers from diverse backgrounds, both ethnic and economic, in theatre for social justice. To give them the chance to perform and tour in a professional company.
- To bring new and previously unheard stories to mainstream audiences – and into the heart of those communities whose stories they are. We want to connect them through dialogue and debate.
- To work with communities and help them create their own artistic response.
Mandala is a Community Interest Company. From our centre in Oxford, we aim to reach out to the world.
