    Welcome to Kilter.

    We create theatrical events out of interesting, beautiful and unique people and places, and the issues affecting our world today.

    Since 2006 the company has forged a reputation for creating a unique and pioneering brand of theatre and associated arts. We devise site-specific plays, produce curious installations and deliver bespoke workshops in and around our base in Bath, and further afield. We use humour, adventure, great stories, enthralling characters and overwhelming emotions to explore and encourage debate about the environment, social justice, local heritage and the future.

    Our work is always surprising and playful, empowering and utterly involving – devotees say there is nothing else quite like Kilter!

    We support our local community with a broad range of arts activities. We also love to respond to new opportunities and commissions on a wider scale. On top of all that, year after year we plough on through a bottomless list of enticing ideas for new work.

    We are particularly proud of our pioneering low-carbon approach. Everything we do – from our local community choirs to our national and international touring work – is underpinned by our desire to find ways to create a sustainable arts practice. Time and time again, we are delighted to discover that the more thoughtful, simple approach to making and sharing work not only reduces waste but also brings more day to day joy for us and our audiences.

    Collaboration is at the heart of our work, and our creative teams and collaborators are a diverse bunch – musicians, actors, designers, teachers, community champions, scientists, environmentalists, and public engagement professionals. We receive support, funding and commissions from a wide range of people, from friends and family to local, national and international organisations, including Bath & North East Somerset Council, Arts Council England, the eggUniversity of Bath, The Edge Arts, University of Bristol, BrisSynBioCentre for Alternative Technology, Forum for the Future, Sustrans, Transition, and Bath Hospital Radio.
