Total Ensemble works on a project-to-project basis, thriving on the resulting independence with its strong focus on quality of ‘positive-feeling’ experience, its unique process, artistic integrity and originality.

It does not exist in one particular building. Creativity happens inside, outside in any suitable venue or location, it feeds off new landscapes, the artistry of Mother Nature, the mystery of the natural world, beautiful architecture, unique spaces and the exploration of new territory.

Total Ensemble does not hold drop-in classes or regular term-time activities. 

It strives to give ample notice of forthcoming workshops, events and performances, making each project accessible to as many people as possible.

All creativity happens by working and playing in the arts, with and for hugely diverse groups of people, casts and audiences consisting of humanity in all its natural beauty and brilliance; differently abled people, some with a wide range of experience and those with none at all, those that might face extreme challenges, both physical and emotional and those that don’t.

This is NOT a project about disability or disadvantage. It is not about non-disabled people helping those with disabilities or any other form of perceived or real hierarchy. It shines a fierce light on diversity and equality; every individual involved exercising their passion for supporting and facilitating the talents, dreams and creativity of themselves and everyone else to the very best of their ability.
