       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 glitteringly ambitious experiment to create new live shows by sharing a story around the world. Its an invitation to make theatre, but not as you might expect. Adapt the unfinished script locally and find ways to connect the story to the place where you live. Then share what you create virtually.


First made in Sydney, Australia in 1987, revisited in 2007, with five productions in 2012; BiDiNG TiME is opening up creative processes to encourage a diversity of response to this story and celebrate cultural exchange. In a world where women still face discrminiation, climate change and environmental disaster threaten our survival, we need to tell new stories in new ways.  


We need creative people; performers, music makers, designers, artists, and you. Play your part Sing songs in your choir, read the script in your book group, design costumes or... dream up something yourself. Become a creative partner: Make your version of the story for your local audience.

BiDiNG TiME is about change and action, creating 'fairtrade' theatre. New stories are vital to social change and imagination is powerful. Climate Change is a central theme and a driving force.

Creative processes can 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!

This project is a jigsaw puzzle. Keep in touch, watch it change and grow. Thanks for your time.
