intercultural theatre and performing arts company


Crosspath is a cross-cultural performing arts company that was co-founded in 2010 by poets John Agard and Grace Nichols and playwright/theatremaker Mark C. Hewitt. Crosspath aims to bridge poetry and theatre through a celebration of resonant text and orality. Fusing a range of traditions and linking cultures, Crosspath brings the communal energy of folk narrative, mythology, panto and the carnivalesque to contemporary issues and hidden histories.

Crosspath strives to be a democratic company. Intrinsic to the concept is the flexible use of space; leaving much of the setting to the audience’s imagination so that shows can be staged and adapted in non-theatre spaces and environments, such as community centres, museums, libraries, schools, village halls etc. The company is based in Lewes, Sussex.

The Crosspath team also collaborate to devise and present one-off events, such as local contributions to the
World Poetry Movement's global poetry celebrations.
