The Elements World Theatre (EWT) is a professional new writing company presenting new ways of looking at old myths, archetypes and cultural conflict.

Our productions often feature cross-cultural collaborations and the merging of diverse art forms and styles of storytelling, poetry, dance and music.

The company has presented new work in local, national and international festivals including the Edinburgh International Festival of Middle-Eastern Spirituality and Peace (MESP), the Biggar Little Festival; the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival; and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

EWT is dedicated to presenting thought provoking, intimate and moving theatre that is sometimes controversial and always as beautiful to see as it is meaningful to experience.

“The Elements World Theatre is an experience as much as a show, though performed with great skill. It’s challenging conventional ideas of theatre and opening up stories and big ideas.” Donald Smith, Director, Scottish Storytelling Centre.
