Elevate East

Elevate East is an artistic development organisation, cofounded and led by Creative Director, Jack Edwards and Creative Producer, Martha Rumney.

With fun at the forefront of the collective, Elevate East curate, immerse and play with experiential performances and cabaret ‘cum’ game shows, putting audiences through their paces, on the wackiest of adventures.

After taking 'The Generation Gameshow Cabaret' to the The National Theatre River Stage, where generations were put against each other within nostalgic gameshows, commenting on the cost of living, they are launching their third iteration of 'Stuck In The Lift', an artistic development programme and scratch night for creatures of the underground nightlife scene. Alongside a cheeky appearance at Mighty Hoopla and working with Tik-Tok comedy superstar, Bailey J Mills, on their next one-woman show, you're never too far from an Elevate East show.

The East London based duo also created, ‘Fancy Anuva’ Big Brother’, a raucous, high-energy gameshow, performed at Theatre Deli, putting the audience as the housemates, competing in tasks and challenges to win prizes.

Elevate East's most recent concoction was 'The Last Exorcism in Soho', a ghoulish cabaret night housed within The House of St. Barnabas in Soho.
