What we do

We're a multi talented bunch here at The Lab Collective; we specialise in creating performance for theatres, festivals, and private events, as well as training performers and theatre makers in our unique practice.  Either join us at The Fly Pit, or we can bring all of our services to you!  



Do you have a project burning a hole in your brain?  Or perhaps you're looking to develop your understanding of creating interactive, immersive or playable performance?


Whatever your drive, we have a workshop to fit the bill, or if you're looking for something more tailored, get in touch to arrange a consultation.


We create performance to engage, challenge and thrill our audiences. The work we make is intended to heighten the audience’s experience by breaking the barrier between the performer and spectator, whether this be an intimate one on one experience, or a larger scale performance.


Our performances are mostly devised and take place in unusual spaces which are not traditionally used as theatres, or have been forgotten or displaced – sites which can come alive with performance and engage the public in an innovative and radical way.


All of our studio performances are availble to transfer across the UK; to book our performances, get in touch for a tour pack.


Our practitioners and performers can make your event something truly special.


We create bespoke performances for a variety of companies, venues and themes. 


Our event performances have taken place across the UK from the fields of Boomtown festival, to the RAF museum and beyond, we have a variety of packages on hand.


Get in touch to book a consultation, and we can bring your ideas to life.  



Our new home The Fly Pit is a characterful space to create, film, host a workshop or hold an event in.  


Originally a 19th Century scene dock for Stanley Hall's performance space, The Fly Pit is a truly unique venue which can get your ideas off the ground. 


We have a variety of packages for different budgets; from working in shared space as a not for profit, to exclusive tailored use, feel free to book a viewing!
