Pursued by a Bear is an award winning theatre and digital film company, resident at Farnham Maltings in the South East. We produce new writing by some of the UK’s most distinctive voices. Much of our work is global in setting and scope (our last three productions were set variously in India, Russia and Africa) while our current touring production – The Lamellar Project is a trans-atlantic co-production with American company – Tiny Dynamite.
Founded in 1998, we have commissioned and produced over 15 new theatre commissions for UK tour as well as a feature length film in 2012 and numerous short films made in educational/participatory settings. We also run script writing workshops and offer bespoke dramaturgical support to professional playwrights as well as emerging talent.
We work with award winning designers, choreographers and film makers to create a striking and unforgettable theatre experience. Our work is atmospheric, thought provoking and passionate.
The company is run by Artistic Director – Helena Bell, Associate Director for film – Grant Watson and Administrator – Jo Turner and overseen by an experienced Board of Directors. Oladipo Agboluaje is PBAB’s Associate Playwright.
Forthcoming for 2017 – the US transfer of The Lamellar Project by Grant Watson, directed by Helena Bell in collaboration with US theatre artist Jorge Cousineau and American co-producers – Tiny Dynamite to re-conceive the show for a Philadelphia audience.
