  • Mission statement

    Story is at the heart of every Metta production – we reimagine popular narratives using text, music, projection, puppetry, dance and circus. We tell political stories with imagination. We believe that everyone, regardless of their age or background, should be able to access bold, innovative and intelligent theatre.

    meta-theatrical: theatre that’s aware of it’s own theatricality – replacing reality with imagination.

    metta: a Buddhist word meaning compassion, loving kindness, the strong wish for the happiness of others.
