Arena Theatre Company creates inspiring live performances that have a genuine engagement with young audiences. Arena productions are an investigation and celebration of the reality of its young audiences: diverse, complex, self-defining and ever-changing. Under the artistic leadership of Christian Leavesley, the Company's work fulfills the promise of live theatre, fostering experiences that are surprising, fertile, explosive, dangerous and inspiring generating extraordinary spaces brimming with truth and lies, where contemporary human experiences can be uniquely expressed, felt and reinvented. The philosophy which drives Arena's work is founded on respect a vision in which theatre for young audiences is not viewed merely as a form of education, preparation for adulthood, or an opportunity for audience development. Arena acts on the belief that theatre for young people is first and foremost a vital and evolving art form capable of engendering unique and transformative experiences for its audiences in the here and now.
