We are Make, DO Theatre. You can call us Make, DO. We’re a young(ish), tight-knit ensemble of actors, activists, writers, readers, directors, performance-goers, dancers, tea-brewers, facilitators, conversationalists, musicians, party-goers, artists, animal lovers, producers, raconteurs, environmentalists, friends, and nerds. We met during a research project as Drama students at the University of Huddersfield and gained actors from Yorkshire and Manchester. Since then we’ve trained together, written, produced, and toured our first play ‘Little Change’, run workshops including our annual Make, DO: Collaborate programme, performed in front of thousands at the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival, worked with loads of brilliant local artists, and, most recently, written a series of original audio-visual plays. Our mission is to inspire positive social and cultural change. Specifically, we believe in amplifying the voices of those who struggle to be heard. We like to make original, unapologetic, cross-genre art. We work across physical theatre, digital art, poetry, and verbatim/documentary theatre.
Thank you so much to everyone who expressed an interest in our recent call out. Keep coming back to experience the final play in our audio-series! To catch up on the other two simply head here.
We have released our second audio-play! “Do You Mind If I Sit” follows an unlikely meeting of two strangers, one with an extraordinary past and the other faces a very ordinary future. Have a listen here.
