DrawnForth aims to create challenging opera theatre that will excite, amaze and entertain. The collective was formed in 2009 out of a collaboration between composer Catherine Kontz, designer Ellan Parry and writer Alexia Anastasiadis, and collaboration remains at the core of our vision. By researching and developing music, text and design in parallel, we believe that we can create a rich and engaging theatre experience.
