MashUp! Productions Believes in Bringing Play to the Masses!
Underpinned by the principles of Claire’s research, MashUp! is a production company that specialises in Festival Games, Interactive Theatre, Roaming Characters and parties that are innovative and unique.
At the heart of all that we do is a commitment to making people the heroes and stars of their own adventures, bringing festival fun from beyond the fields, producing memorable moments and freeing people up to play and participate.
Through rich collaborations with likeminded performers and makers we produce massive parties, intimate installations and everything in between.
MashUp! currently curates Ninth Life, a huge multi-faceted venue in South East London in partnership with Laine Pub Company.
