Children are central to our art as collaborators and participants. Our work exists to give children the power to be in control, to have an effect and to experience freedom.
Polyglot places children at the heart of our art. Our vision is of a world where all children are powerful: artistically, socially and culturally.
Polyglot’s mission is to make innovative and daring theatre which provides children everywhere the opportunity for imagination and adventure through participation. We offer transformational and playful arts experiences that are alive and human in their content and connection. We relish the endless possibilities in theatre and performance for this very specific audience, providing scope for an extraordinary range of form and style. We are committed to advocating for the right of all children to experience arts and culture, promoting the importance of children as a discerning audience from a young age.
Our artistic approach is one of unbridled curiosity, rigour and daring. We champion innovation and invite the unexpected.
We work with respect, resourcefulness and in a spirit of genuine collaboration in the pursuit of an environmentally, creatively and economically sustainable future.
We work with inclusive practice and a strong focus on accessibility, understanding the need for equitable engagement in the arts.
We believe in leading change and pursuing best practice for our staff, our artists and our Board.
