We are The Six Twenty, a national touring theatre company based in Newcastle. An associate company of Live Theatre, we make ambitious, immersive and innovative new work that fuses new writing, live music, devised and verbatim theatre together. We also make bold re-imaginings of classic and contemporary plays.
Setting fire to what theatre can be, we believe it should begin well before the curtain rises and long after it drops. We think theatre works best as a social event with a reason to come early and stay late. There is no formula to our work, but the audience is always at its heart. We don’t make ‘sit down, shut up’ theatre. This is theatre that should be enjoyed at maximum volume.
A head-banging show that’s energetic, loud and tremendous fun Everything Theatre (Fans)
Touring throughout the UK to theatres, outdoor spaces and unexpected places; we make shows that are social, relevant and responsive to the modern world. Theatre that creates conversation and brings people together for a great night out.
How modern theatre should be, it’s live, it’s immersive and it makes you want to jump out of your seat and dance. Fans is a performance for everyone, from the teens of today right up to the oldies because quite simply, it features every genre and it moved every heart in that room
