Theatre Melange

Theatre Melange professional arts organisation

Theatre Mélange create participatory events & performances designed for specific places or to tour nationally in the UK and abroad.

Our latest venture, Out of the Mouth of the Parrett, is a partnership with Somerset County Council Library Service - follow the news @MelangeECHO, #ParrettsMouth and on our Facebook page.

Originally based at the landmark De La Warr Pavilion, we relocated to Somerset in 2009 launching our arrival with the ECHO Project.

Captured in film, sound and live performance, these are colourful portraits of each place as seen through the eyes of the people who live there. The voyage began in Minehead culminating in Portrait of a Seaside Town; travelled to Watchet for Portrait of a Harbour Town and then along the Somerset coast to disembark at Burnham for Portrait of a Coastal Town. The project also has partners in Romania and France where similar activities have taken place.

We constantly seek new ways to involve our audiences whether as spectator or participant: ways that excite, challenge, celebrate and connect. Connect us to the communities we engage with, the artists we work with and the partnerships that sustain us.

Whether across different countries or between neighbouring communities, an exchange of experience is at the heart of our work: an exchange that can produce something richer than the sum of its separate parts. From this process of exchange, we seek to create events that can transform the way people see themselves, each other and the places where they live.

Theatre Melange is supported with investment from Arts Council England, the National Lottery; the European Union; Somerset County Council and South Somerset District Council.
