Barbican Theatre

Barbican Theatre is a dynamic charity established in 1980. Young people and the development of creative skills are at the heart of all that they do.

Barbican Theatre’s ambition from the beginning has been to raise the standard of dance and theatre performance being produced by, with and for young people. Seeking to challenge what traditional notions of theatre and dance are, and liberate the imagination of young people to create fresh and exciting work that comes from new and unusual voices – voices that are often unheard.

By challenging young people to work hard at their craft and develop creative and social skills which enhance their learning, resilience and determination to succeed in whatever career path they choose.

Barbican theatre have over 40 years worth of experience in creating and producing theatre and dance of the highest quality across Plymouth and the wider South West region about relevant and sensitive contemporary issues, and utilising the talents of emerging artists on and off the stage.
