The birthplace of Jerry Springer the Opera and the first London venue to present Punchdrunk, BAC nurtures talented emerging artists and is renowned for making some of the most cutting-edge new work in the UK.
BAC work with artists who question traditional forms of theatre and make work that often doesn’t start life with a script. Theatre that blurs genres, challenges our view of the world and thrives on experiment. They present performances across 70 rooms in our old town hall: in theatre spaces, offices, down in the basement and up in the attic. Some events spill out of the building and onto the street: in schools, supermarkets, laundrettes, on boating lakes or online.
Housed in a Grade II* listed old town hall, BAC is a place where artists, audience, participants and staff can play a role in inventing the future of theatre.
