MED Theatre

MED Theatre is a community theatre organisation based on Dartmoor, which means we work with anyone from the area, whether professionally trained in the arts or not. We are united in a commitment to seeing the performing arts cultivated and developed within Dartmoor 's rural communities, providing local artists with employment and members of the community with opportunities to take part in the development of new, exciting work that is relevant to our area.

MED Theatre’s current programme, Dartmoor Elements, is designed to raise and debate issues around ecology, energy use, climate change, facilities for people in rural areas, and community action. During this 2-year programme there will be two large-scale topical plays, using local material developed out of a performing arts workshop programme, as well as a dance drama, film work and a music piece, integrated with a large expansion of our education programme in and out of schools. The aim of the project is to empower local artists and participants to deliver original and innovative work on an important current topic from a rural angle.
