We are Mick Martin & Jude Wright. We are Bent Architect.
We create original shows which give voice to the voiceless. We create new worlds and experiences for participants and audiences.
Since 2006, Bent Architect has created a range of national tours of original new theatre, touring to numerous theatre and non-theatre venues and delivering a wide range of educational activities alongside. In addition to this, we have always worked successfully with partners to deliver our work, often those who would not otherwise engage creatively in the subject matter. We are interested in exploring issues of the voiceless, those who society feels uncomfortable with.
