Theatre Jukebox Kitchen

In the Kitchen

Stand + Stare create immersive theatre in which their audiences play an active part. They achieve this by imposing a role within the narrative for them, such as passengers on a ship (SS Arcadia), or by prescribing levels of interaction in order to move a story forwards (The Children of Modernity). They have an eye for design, a taste for technology and a commitment to writing and devising new stories. Founder members, Barney and Lucy Heywood are brother and sister and often draw influences from shared memories and family history.

They enjoy collaborating with a broad spectrum of artists from different disciplines to create large-scale site-specific shows, small intimate pieces and commercial commissions.
