First Line Theatre

We strive to take live performance out of gallery spaces, as there is an unhealthy disconnect between art communities and the general public.

We make work outside of art spaces so that people who don’t necessarily seek out art can experience it in some way.
We believe art is for anyone and everyone.

Heart & Lungs ︎

Heart & Lungs is an ode to failed relationships.

Exploring the life-cycle of a romantic relationship from two perspectives, in an intimate look at the things we say to the people we love when no one else is around. In a time when more and more of our communication is done through our phones and online, how much are we actually saying to each other?

From the very first date to the last goodbye, Heart & Lungs is for anyone who has loved and lost, and had enough hope to do it all over again.

Basic Space ︎

People passing all around. Cars, voices, noises blurring into background sound. Faces one by one fading into the distance.

Basic Space explores how easy it can be to feel completely alone on a busy city street. People bustling all around. Nameless faces passing by. The isolation that can be felt in the every day, even when surrounded by people. For intimate audiences, each audience member is given a headset connected to pre-recorded audio as we journey through the city together.

A companion peice, Living Space ︎ is a durational live performance exploring our relationships with the space, our living space and the connections that we create with and within it.
