OBRA Theatre Co was founded on a belief in the power of language and the imagination to transform both performer and audience. The company seeks to make theatre in which language is the source for and is inseparable from the physical life of the performer in all its nuances. OBRA seek an embodied performance state; the interaction of intellect, instinct and imagination in the performer.
The company develop their practice through exchanges with other practitioners and artists, and in the form of open research sessions at Au Brana, investigating particular source material and approaches to making theatre. The company members lead workshops for professionals, students and youth at their base in France and throughout Europe.
