Black Theatre Live

30 Bird Productions

We create multi-disciplinary performance projects, often designed for non-theatrical spaces and toured nationally and internationally to theatres, festivals, cinemas and sometimes across whole cities.  We want our audiences to have a direct relationship with our work; to engage, to participate and to be surprised.

30 Bird is an award winning performance company based in Cambridge, England. Each one of our projects is unique - no one project taking the same form as another - and often using the detail of autobiographical stories to explore global issues pertinent to contemporary society.

Our roots lie in visual theatre with the company's early work presented at venues such as the Riverside Studios, Lyric Hammersmith, Birmingham Rep, The Traverse Edinburgh, Cambridge Junction and Warwick Arts Centre. In recent years our practice has shifted to creating outdoor, site-specific, multi-disciplinary and interactive performance projects that create unique experiences for audiences.

30 Bird’s creative process is a collaborative one working with practitioners from a variety of disciplines: architecture, science, the visual arts, dance, music, theatre and film. Our work has an international flavour, collaborating with artists and practitioners from as varied a background as the UK, Iran, Germany, Italy, Poland, India, Japan and Turkey.
