The Faction is an award-winning ensemble reinventing classics for the 21st century.
We have been training and collaborating together since 2008. Our shared history and continual development gives our work a unique theatrical and physical language that is inhabited by every ensemble member. The collective voice and kinetic energy of our ensemble resonates with our audiences in all of our work.
The text is our launchpad. We interrogate the written word as an ensemble, embracing everyone’s perspective, searching for new details, and always making unexpected discoveries.
Our signature stripped-back aesthetic places the actors at the centre of the empty space, and the ensemble’s innovative and dynamic physicality creates the world of the play. By releasing these texts in exciting and unexpected ways, we provoke the imagination of our audience members, inviting them to see these plays as if for the first time.
Classic texts have epic scale, intimate detail, rich language, powerful imagery, and enduring themes. These classics are both subjective and universal, relevant to our own experience and applicable to everyone.
They speak to all of us – here and now
