Theatro Technis is the original arts organisation which inhabited this space. Founded in 1957 by George Eugeniou and a group of actors five decades ago, Theatro Technis first started its work in an old unused warehouse located in the backyard of King's Cross.
Then after many challenges, it finally found its permanent home in an old Church building where it has flourished into a centre of multi-faceted and multi-cultural activities.
It became one of the first venues in the UK dedicated to serving its local, working-class, and immigrant community back in the early '60s. Since then it has continued to be home to international companies and independent artists.
scene & heard
Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals. They give the children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays which are then performed by professional actors.
Their performances give the children immediate and public experiences of success, raising their aspirations and boosting their self-esteem. Scene & Heard is committed to producing the highest quality theatre with and for the Somers Town community. Their work improves literacy skills and attitudes towards education and develops communication and social skills. They have been performing at Theatro Technis for over 20 years.
"This is theatre of the highest quality: imaginative, inspirational and above all huge fun" -
MICHAEL SHEEN, Actor and Scene & Heard Patron.
