We write most of our work including the music component. Wow record our own songs in our recording studio.

The foundation for all of our work is based in the style and conventions of Epic Theatre.
The ideas and ideals of the style can be found in the writings of Bertolt Brecht and Erwin Piscator.
There is usually a musical and choreographic element to our work.
