Welcome to Theatre Objektiv

Welcome to Theatre Objektiv

Theatre Objektiv is a Scottish company based in Edinburgh which draws on Scottish and European themes and styles to produce scripted and explorative/experimental theatre which combines visual and physical performance with words, music, movement and storytelling.

It begins with the Word. It ends with the Word. It is a theatre of voyages: a visual theatre emerging from shadows, a kinetic theatre throwing shapes. A theatre of irony, of musing and of laughter.

It visits hidden history in dark places, speaking English and Scots, sometimes a little Polish, French or Yiddish. And it sings.

It is ghetto theatre: a theatre on edge and scratching at walls, windows and doors. Shadows in our ghetto include: Kantor, Grotowski, Artaud, Aleichem, MacDiarmid, Mickiewicz, Burns, Slowacki, Wispianski, Lorca, Mac-Gill-Eain, Singer, Jung, Henderson and Zimmerman.

Theatre Objektiv is addicted to zal, to duende and to conyach. That is, it is a theatre of the senses and of transformation.

We are ane tinkler theatre whilk bids ye weill frae Auld Reekie til Nowe Miasto!
