Site-specific theatre

Formed in 2000, in situ: is the successor to Cambridge Experimental Theatre, the pioneering avant-garde group of the 80’s and 90’s.

Professionally-run, in situ: works with non-professional collaborators from all walks of life who join the group after attending workshops.

in situ: creates performances outside the boundaries of conventional theatre by performing in non-theatre spaces – houses, churches, museums – and employing the tools of theatre-making – especially voice, text and story – in new and surprising ways.

in situ: History

in situ: was formed in April 2000 to produce high-quality theatrical performances emphasising the use of the space and environment (usually concentrating on non-theatre spaces), extended vocality and technology.

Since then, in situ: has given nearly 200 performances and taught hundreds of people who want to learn how to act.


in situ: teaches a range of acting skills, from one- or two-day courses covering beginners and advanced acting skills and workshops on specific techniques and practitioners, to residential, environmental workshops involving performance in outdoor spaces.
