Curious Monkey is a Theatre Company of Sanctuary. This means that we welcome people seeking sanctuary in the UK, one of the ways that we do that is through the Arriving project. 

The Arriving project is a place where people seeking sanctuary in the North East of England can be creative, can have new experiences and feel welcome. It’s a place to meet up with friends and make new friends. We go on monthly trips to the theatre in Newcastle upon Tyne, and run events and projects that are led by our group and Curious Monkey’s creative team – from yoga to salsa to creating theatre. 

Over the last 18 months we have worked with an amazing group of people who have been an integral part of the development of our new production HERE. Members of the group will perform a short theatre piece before the main production on the 24th and 26th March 2020 at Northern Stage. 

The group are also the co-creators of the Happiness Project  – a commission from Battersea Arts Centre’s Co Creating Change Network. Members of our group are creating projects that will improve happiness in their communities. Click here for more info.
