Life-affirming work that aims to uphold the basic human rights of equality and freedom of expression
THEWHATWORKS is an international theatre company working in India, Bangladesh and the UK. We make work with, about and for women and girls, and specialise in multi-lingual theatre.
Directed by Imogen Butler-Cole, multi-linguist and graduate in Lecoq-based physical theatre, we have created shows in English, Bangla, Hindi, Urdu and Portuguese and worked with Shakespeare's Globe, the BBC and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. We have toured India, Bangladesh and the UK with Shakespeare, folk tales and original self-made stories.
We are currently developing Foreign Body, a testimonial account of healing and forgiveness following sexual assault. Following our successful crowdfunder (still accepting donations!) there will be shows of the piece in development at RADA Festival and Off Beat Festival Oxford in June 2016.
