Green Ginger makes award-winning theatre for both streets and stage, creates short puppet films and 'mockumentaries' and offers accessible educational workshops tailored to suit any age group or ability. Since its formation in 1978, the Company has had a commitment to puppetry in the widest sense and its practitioners will use any tools and effects they can put their grubby little hands on to realise its surreal and absurd imagery.

Green Ginger acts as an umbrella organisation under which freelance theatre makers work together to write, design, teach and perform. Its members regularly collaborate with organisations such as Aardman Animations, Ecole Superiere National de la Marionnette (France), Welsh National Opera and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and the Company receives invitations for commissions and consultancies for stage, TV, film and community projects.

The Company has its roots in the spontaneity of street theatre and 33 years of outdoor performance all over the world has informed the rest of Green Ginger's output.




'The deranged product of
dangerously sick minds...
for the sake of the nation
they should be kept off the streets'
