Bold, ambitious, visual. Loud and unapologetic storytelling
Carmen Collective, a new company based around the collaboration of Writer/Director Sam Rees (co-Artistic Director of We Talk Of Horses @WTOHTheatre) and Producer/Designer/Director Ella Dale. Both Sam and Ella are experienced theatre-makers in their own right, and have worked independently and together on a range of critically-acclaimed works. The company makes bold, vibrant performance which looks and feels like 2021, blending Sam’s unique theatre-making practice with Ella’s background in modern art. Carmen Collective’s last project, heavymetalsexyanimal, secured ACE funding and the support of theatres such as the Old Vic, Katzpace and Theatre Deli as well as organizations such as Central Saint Martins College of Art and WoLab.
