Working Overseas

Small World Theatre places great importance on global citizenship. Our aim is to create unique, flexible theatre that can travel to promote environmental sustainability, equality, individual rights and responsibilities as well as social integration. We believe in contributing to the Arts in Wales as well as the well-being of communities across the world.

Small World Theatre has 40 years experience working oversees on projects relating to health and well-being, Human Rights, the Rights of the Child and the dangers facing refugee families in the UK and abroad. Ann Shrosbree and Amy Morris, Winding Snake Productions most recently collaborated to be part of the UK-India 2017 cultural season.

in 2019, Small World Theatre created an exhibition to highlight some of the overseas projects spanning 40 years of the founding directors’ careers. A reminder of that exhibition and the stories told by Ann Shrosbree and Bill Hamblett are here

Rangoli: Art that Binds

Winding Snake Productions and Small World Theatre collaborated on the project Rangoli: Art that Binds supported by the Season, British Council Wales, Wales Arts International and Arts Council Wales. Eleven Welsh arts projects are taking Welsh culture to India as part of the UK-India 2017 cultural season.

Welsh and Indian creative professionals traveled to each other’s countries to develop, produce and perform new work. Amy and Ann, the directors of Winding Snake and Small World Theatre, visited India in  February 2017 to build connections and partnership with Indian artists and organisations.

More than 100 people participating in the launch of Rangoli: Art that Binds at Small World Theatre on 15 August 2017.

Rangoli (or kollam) is a women’s decorative artform designed to reflect the natural world. Participants were invited from across the community to make a giant Rangoli with special guest Indian folk artist Rajni Kiran-Jha. People came together to celebrate friendship, art and beauty in dazzling displays of colour, skill and skillshare in an all-day Rangoli making workshop with artists from India and Wales.
