MADE BY MORTALS – Performance projects that explore our capacity for change.
Made By Mortals is a not-for-profit social enterprise that delivers multimedia performance projects through creative collaborations with professional and participatory artists from a range of social and cultural backgrounds.
We aim to challenge preconceptions of what is possible from a performance that has participation at its heart. Our projects are fundamentally about using creativity to bring about positive change – on a personal, social, artistic and community basis.
DIRECTORS – Paul Hine & Andy Smith
“The inspirational collaboration between these two remarkable artists has helped many people.”
Sir Edmund & Lady Angela Burton, Phillip Barker Trust
Paul & Andy are a theatre maker and composer duo based in Manchester. The pair met while working for Manchester Camerata on their outreach programme creating new music theatre for young people.
Since then, Paul and Andy have continued to work together on many professional and participatory projects to people of all ages and from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds. Both together and independently, Paul and Andy have worked for many of the major orchestras, theatres and leading arts organisations in the UK as well as working internationally as a theatre maker and composer. They are dedicated to using creativity in education, health and wellbeing and outreach.
Their aim is to create engaging, issue based new music theatre and in doing so challenge artistic preconceptions of what is possible from a performance that has participation at its heart.
