About Curious Theatre

Frequently edgy, often humorous and always authentic, Curious work in the space between theatre, live art, installation and research.

Our works are global and domestic: sometimes large, sometimes small in scale, with intimacy and a shared sense of encounter at their heart. Founded by Helen Paris and Leslie Hill, Curious create acclaimed, highly individual work that has been experienced by audiences worldwide in all kinds of venues, including theatres, outdoor sites and on film.

Curious also deliver an international programme of courses, workshops and mentoring, alongside award-winning publications and research.

Curious are privileged to have been managed and produced by Artsadmin for 20 years and advised by a brilliant and generous board, current members: Philippa Barr, Theresa Beattie, CJ Mitchell (chair) and Jen Parker-Starbuck; past members Mark Ball, Andrew Kotting, Jen McLachlan and Ant Roberts.
