OVER 10 YEARS OF PROFESSIONAL THEATRE-MAKING & EDUCATION IN GUILDFORD
"This is why British theatre is such a marvel" - The Daily Telegraph, King Lear, 2015
GSC is an award-winning professional theatre company, based in Guildford, Surrey.
Art, in all its forms, contains the unparalleled ability to transform lives. Whether it is a watercolour being looked at, a book being read aloud, a dance at a wedding or a piece of live theatre, art has the power to take us to places we have never been, feel emotions we’ve never felt, inspiring us to new ideas and ways of looking at our world and how we live in it.
Although easily accessible to everyone, art still carries certain misconceptions that it is an expensive ‘hobby’, for an educated elite, or a ‘daunting occasion that’s not for me’. At GSC, part of our mandate is to challenge those perceptions and encourage a new way to experience theatre-going and arts engagement.
GSC’s productions and events seek to place the audience right at the heart of the action, using each venue to its best advantage. In this way the whole venue becomes the performance space, thus challenging the audience’s usually passive involvement in conventional theatre, giving them a unique and visceral experience.
