Corona Virus Update:
We hope you are all keeping safe and well during these difficult times and staying home in order to keep others safe too. It is a tough time for all for all of us and in order to support children and families, we have decided to share our show Tales of Birbal free online (filmed at Curve Theatre in 2017, at The Spark Festival). The show will be available from 8th May 6pm until the end of the month.
Would like to support Mashi Theatre? You can send us a donation to help us continue to work in our communities and create reflective work for all children and families.
Mashi was established in 2013, in response to the lack of diverse work on offer, particularly for young people. A Mashi is a keeper of stories and teller of tales, re-wakening stories steeped in culture to hand them down to new generations. We are Playful, Challenging, Universal & Inquisitive, bringing people together through the art of telling stories, that transcend time and offer a fresh perspective.
We make theatre which tours to venues and community spaces. We offer a menu of bespoke educational and training workshops for Schools, HE colleges, Universities and other businesses, ranging from 'stories from other cultures' to Clown workshops and Corporate training packages.
Our current show 'Stripey Honey... is vey yummy!' was commissioned by Big Imaginations, in partnership with The Spark and supported by The Dukes in currently touring (Feb-April 2019). See our events page to find your nearest venue.
Stripey Honey….. is very yummy!
A new play for young audiences, ages 5 years plus
Stripey Honey….. is very yummy! set in the Sunderbans, is the touching and funny story of how tigers, bees and local honey collectors learn to live and play together.
The production is a collaboration between Mashi Theatre, Big Imagination and The Spark Arts, supported by The Dukes Lancaster to tour to community venues and libraries in the North West and East Midlands.
Mashi Theatre is known for sharing universal stories with a playfulness and colourful exploration evocative of South Asian culture. This new writing commission is inspired by protection and survival, incorporating sound, movement, simple puppetry and the spirit of the Jungle.
Mashi's Artistic Director is Awarded the Naseem Khan Commission with Bristol Old Vic, The Lowry & Curve Theatre
