'Encompass are the most eloquent, friendliest, humblest of people one could ever hope to work with. Their ethos summarises everything you could hope for in an arts organisation.' - Nadia Gasper, Scribble Ink
'Designed to inspire...brilliant, open and honest.' - Goldsmiths, University of London
Encompass are a multifaceted company with a wide range of skills amongst our ensemble. Our ethos states that we want to enrich people's lives through our work - and so we believe that it is our artistic duty to share what we have learnt not just in performance, but in active engagement with the community.
As part of our outreach programme we have run workshops and seminars at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Goldsmiths University of London, the University of East London and the Mary Wallace Theatre. In previous years we held a public Q&A with renowned British actor David Thewlis and taught an entire theatre curriculum at Clever Endeavours.
