Floating World Productions provides a platform for emerging artists and theatrical diversity. Founded by theatre artist Andrea Scott to combine theatre, dance, film, visual art, music, interactive sound and visual elements. We work in both conventional theatrical spaces and unusual environments. We won’t be pigeonholed!
The emerging artist is at the core of our work. Established artists of the company pass on their skills to our Emerging World young artists.
What brings our diverse work together is the invitation to our audience to live in the moment with us. We strive to bring you into a space in which you will be transported by a story, a movement, a sound or a picture. Sometimes the space will reveal it’s own story, sometimes the performer is at the centre of that space. We believe the theatre experience can be transformative in all of its forms. Come join us.
‘Living only for the moment, turning our full attention to the pleasures of the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms and the maple leaves; singing songs, drinking wine, diverting ourselves in just floating, floating: caring not a whit for the pauperism staring us in the face, refusing to be disheartened, like a gourd floating along with the river current: this is what we call the floating world …‘ Tales of the Floating World by Asai Ryoi
