About

Untitled User Untitled User
Hijinx Theatre is one of Wales' leading professional small scale touring theatre companies. From our base at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, we tour high quality, original theatre to communities throughout the UK, bringing to life stories and characters that are comical, poignant, inspiring and challenging.

Hijinx is passionate about pioneering the inclusion of people with learning disabilities in the arts and to creating a range of opportunities for participation. In 2007 Hijinx founded the Unity Festival, an international arts festival that puts the very best inclusive arts onto a prestigious platform at Wales Millennium Centre. In 2012 Unity is spreading to two sites over two weeks with a new performance venue on Queen Street right in the centre of Cardiff.

In 2012, Hijinx launched two weekly training courses for performers with learning disabilities: Creative Choices and the Hijinx Academy. For more information about either course, call the Hijinx office on 02920 300331.

International projects

Developing links with international performing arts companies and festivals is an important and rapidly developing strand of Hijinx’s work. Over the last two years we have participated in performances at Escena Mobile Festival, Seville and have hosted performances by Escena’s organisers, dance company Danza Mobile, at the Unity Festival. Clowning companies Clownbaret (Tenerife) and Clownfish (Spain) have been regular performers at Unity since 2009. 2012 will see a range of international companies travelling to Cardiff to perform at Unity, including: Back to Back Theatre (Australia), Theatr Maatwerk (Holland), Grupo Dançando Com A Diferença (Madeira) and Danza Mobile (Spain), amongst others. We are always keen to explore new links with international artists and companies, particularly those who share our ethos of working inclusively.
