Les Commandos Percu (France) and Deabru Beltzak (Spain, Basque Country)

The Clash of Drums (Le Choc des Tambours / Danbor Talka) is a spectacular fusion of percussion and awesome fireworks. Seemingly out of nowhere, drummers march towards each other in a parade winding its way through the audience. The two teams of drummers, twelve in total, play off against each other in a series of percussive ‘battles’ before joining together in a theatrically staged fusion of sound and pyrotechnics. The Clash of Drums toured to Doncaster, Hull, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton and Woolwich.



Lieux Publics (France)

The Audience Orchestra or Symphony on the Streets (Concert de Publics) created by composer Pierre Sauvageot, lets spectators discover the meaning of the word “concert” by acting together for a common goal. The audience participates in a musical game, becoming part of the orchestra and interacting with the conductor to share the pleasure of becoming immersed in live music. The Audience Orchestra toured to Barking and Dagenham, Birmingham, and Hounslow.



Teatr KTO (Poland)

Peregrinus is an emotionally compelling performance inspired by TS Eliot’s The Hollow Men.

Peregrinus toured to Hounslow.




Tombs Creatius (Spain, Catalunya)

Monster Colours (Colors de Monstre) is an array of interactive games to test audiences’ puzzle-solving, cup-stacking and co-ordination abilities, these beautifully designed and handmade wooden games can be played by all ages and skill levels. Audiences can challenge themselves and each other in fascinating games of strategy, accuracy of aim, and problem solving. Monster Colours toured to Birmingham.



Vernisseurs (France)

Merry Urban Mess or Joyous Urban Mess (Joyeuse Pagaille Urbaine) is a spectacular performance full of surprise and delight where the street becomes a playground for 5 ‘workers’ who end up showering themselves and audience in confetti, ribbons and streamers. Merry Urban Mess toured to Birmingham.





Compagnie Artonik  (France)

The Colour of Time was a beautifully conceived promenade dance performance with choreography which evolved from the observation of everyday urban experience through ritual movement to a climactic joyous celebration inspired by the Indian festival of Holi.

The Colour of Time toured to Doncaster, Hounslow, Luton, The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Barking and Dagenham in 2015.


Polyglot (Australia)

Tangle was an unfolding interactive installation, in which children and their families were provided with balls of brightly coloured elastic, which they used to create an expanding and anarchic architectural structure, accompanied by music.
