Mentalhaus is a devised theatre company with high, yet modest artistic standards. We value an emphasis in relationships between the ensemble and our witnesses; acknowledging everyone as a necessary "Element" of our work. We are curious and therefore always investigating and creating opportunities for all to train as a life-long learners.
With the looming pandemic we attempt to navigate the birth of Mentalhaus as a virtual entity. We believe this environment serves as an opportunity to fulfill our desire to cultivate a national and international ensemble base.
