Kibo Productions aims to create work that reflects the world around us in all its complexity and actively seeks to develop work from artists of diverse backgrounds. 

This call out is open to everyone irrespective of race, ethnicity, nationality, faith, disability, gender, sexual identity, neurodiversity, native language, class and/or economic background. Please let us know if you have accessibility requirements or would like any other support to apply for our call out.

We anticipate that much of our programming will have roles open to any gender and hope to provide opportunities for genderqueer theatre makers as part of the Festival.

​The Barons Court Theatre is situated below the Curtain's Up Pub. We deeply regret that it is not easily accessible to everyone. There is a flight of stairs down to the space, a step up to the door, a step down into the space, and a step up and down into the house's right seating bank. 

We look forward to hearing from you and rebooting with you this autumn.

​Sharon and Leo
