MAYA Productions

Description

MAYA wants to change what takes place on our stages and screens. We get excited by hearing stories that don’t often get told, and when we find new ways of telling them. We really want to see the whole range of people we work with, pass on the street and go to school with represented on and off stage. We recognise that we live in a global world, and that connections across borders are important. We create work that engages our senses, takes us to new places, makes us laugh, cry and think. We do this through collaboration, with artists, young people, community organisations, academics, and cultural leaders. We are always on a journey, looking to discover and share something new about the world.
