About Our Charity
Theatre Gargantua, under the direction of Jacquie PA Thomas, has been devising dynamic physical theatre for over 20 years. We begin with an inspired concept and distill it into a richly layered work over a two-year creation cycle. Each production melds daring physicality with striking designs underpinned by live original music, provocative text and the innovative use of technology. Gargantua has garnered over 30 Dora Mavor Moore Nominations and Awards for categories including Outstanding New Play, Direction, Sound Design, Set Design and Light Design. Milestones include extensive touring to the UK, including residencies at the Royal Exchange, Manchester and Rivserside Studios, London and the presentation of the company by Mirvish Productions at Toronto’s renowned Royal Alexandra Theatre.
