BeFrank is a London-based international theatre company that produces ambitious, visually engaging and thought-provoking productions based upon real life stories, current topics and key social and political events that together form the global society we are a part of. We collaborate across multiple disciplines and bring together theatre makers, musicians, academics, journalists and political experts to explore different perspectives on important subjects and current events happening all around the world.
We aim to reach the heart of these issues by travelling to the places and meeting the people involved with each event and hearing their stories first hand. We strive to discover the human story behind the headlines and show the perspectives others are afraid to tackle.
Our process is based upon extensive research and development, field studies and an exploration of digital technologies and storytelling. Our vision is to produce performances of the highest artistic and intellectual quality as well being engaging, interesting and accessible for a wider audience.
The Company was formed in 2010 by Artistic Director Tommy Lexen and has since then developed into an ensemble and creative team from seven different countries representing four continents. As a company we aim to bridge the gaps between diverse communities and create dialogues that can inspire social change.
