the Agitate manifesto
A story is a powerful thing.
The Agitate Collective is a diverse group of performers who create devised theatre that is radical, politically engaged and socially aware. From climate change to migration, the crisis of capitalism, class struggles and identity politics, we address the themes and issues that are most pertinent to our generation.
We know storytelling is an effective way to connect with people and encourage change, and we believe that our responsibility as artists is not just to hold a mirror up to the world, but to wield the hammer that shapes it.
