  • Mission statement

    Our success lies in knowing what our audience wants. We constantly strive to produce great and watchable art that educates without preaching. We want our audience to deal with current topics and at times taboo subjects whilst being able to laugh at the world we live in. This combined with all the glitz and glamour you would expect from a British Asian Theatre Company makes Rifco unique!

    We focus on artistic excellence, new writing and ambitious programming. We believe in Artist Development; working with new writers, nurturing young artists and creating new and exciting work, involving the community every step of the way.

  • Aims

    Rifco Arts aims to:

    • Develop exciting and innovative work through participation with the Community; our audience development scheme and our Arts Ambassadors programme.
    • Develop new audiences to experience and take part in the arts.
    • Develop new writing, new talent and emerging artists through our Artist Development Scheme.
    • Tour relevant, entertaining and thought provoking theatre locally, nationally and internationally.
    • Explore the synergy between British Asians and their culture and heritage.
