About Us

 

Belloo Creative

Belloo Creative is a feminist collective of theatre makers, storytellers and artists who create theatrical and social experiences.

Founded in 2013, Belloo makes theatre and installations to fire the imagination and connect stories with the physical body and public spaces.

The award-winning, all-female company comprises four women with decades of experience in contemporary performance making, community engagement and cultural development: Caroline Dunphy (co-artistic director, director and performer); Dr Katherine Lyall-Watson (co-artistic director and writer); Dr Kathryn Kelly (dramaturg); and Danielle Shankey (producer/community engagement).

We work across performance, movement, physical theatre, community cultural development and the visual arts and all of us are individually involved in teaching, mentoring and advocacy.
