About Chapter Theatre

We present music, sound, movement, dance, theatre, conversation, workshops and happenings in live contexts. Our commitment to experimental performance speaks to our rich history of supporting radical live art practices, and our unique position in Cardiff as a multi-artform venue with the capacity to support artists to develop their practice and share their work dynamically.

We support artists engaged in the idea of live practice: what does it mean to be with an audience? How can this dynamic be a space to sense/learn/be with each other – to think critically and collectively. Our performance programme calls and responds to our wider programme including visual art and film, forming a constellation of ideas and practices. Our work is agile, collaborative and committed to our community – artists, audiences, neighbours, staff, and cultural workers – on our doorstep, in Wales and beyond.
