META MORPHO is a new theatre company founded by Toby Wilsher, co-founder and Artistic Director of Trestle Theatre Company until 2004. The company is based in CHICHESTER, WEST SUSSEX and is affliated to THE NEW THEATRE ROYAL, PORTSMOUTH.
This new new company is striving to bridge the gap between the expectations and experiences of theatre and cinema audiences, by creating work that is rich in story, visual aesthetics and a sense of fun. We create work with strong narratives, fervent emotions and spirited opinions. In the Meta Morpho toolbox are all the techniques to fully embrace 'jumping form', including text, masks, puppets, music and dance.
Our key goal is to entertain people. And we aim to inspire, challenge, provoke and move our audiences, whoever they are.
Wilsher's work with Trestle Theatre Company between 1981 and 2004 and, more recently, with the State Theatre of Istanbul has always aimed to create challenging and rewarding theatre for both newcomers and the cognoscenti. Just as we seek out the latest in design, fashion, music, literature and art, why not check out META MORPHO for up-to-date theatre at it's very best.
METAMORPHO are also affiliated to HAZARDOUS YOUTH THEATRE based in Bracklesham, Chichester.
