    If 'all the world's a stage' and we want to change the world;                                     what does it mean for the stage?

BiDiNG TiME is a story for a live show. Its an invitation to get involved in making theatre, but not theatre as you might expect. We invite you to make a live version of this story about a young woman called Thyme. We ask you to interpret it locally, talk about the world you know.

First made in 1987, revisited in 2007 and 5 different versions made in 2012. There is an unfinished script to share the story. The emphasis is adapting the story to be locally relevant and different adaptations are made in different places to suit local conditions.  


BiDiNG TiME is also a research and development project exploring a new model for making international theatre that is local, democratic, focussed on women, respectful of different cultures and environmentally friendly. There are lots of ways to get involved. Join the next adventure in 2016.

BiDiNG TiME is about change. New stories are vital - imagination is powerful. We're concerned with Climate Change, the role of women, democracy and social change. We believe in the power of people and creative processes to transform perceptions, touch hearts and change minds. This show isn't finished and is open to change. Making it better and more relevant is within your power. That’s the point!
