Black Sheep activate the public realm with artistic and cultural, spectacles, wonders and interventions that, offer audiences new considerations and perspectives on/of the connections between, people and place.
Whether it’s site-specific commissions for new capital developments, assets and destinations; original and alternative theatre productions; repurposing disused commercial districts; mounting a community performance programme of locally rooted talent and emerging arts; or facilitating collaborations between artists and communities- we work with respect and attention to the nuance(s), individual and, essentially-different things that have agency to creatively charge and offer meaning-making. Thus, turning Ordinary Spaces into Extraordinary Places.
Below, are our current projects, productions, invitations and provocations.
Our programme of performance, busking and street arts in Centre:MK, offers platforms for emerging talent, seasoned professionals, and community groups to showcase their artistic and cultural creations and expressions. Complimented by visiting artists and companies, the programme is designed to connect people and place further, so that Centre:MK continues to be a key destination, in one of the UK’s fastest growing places.
