Emergency Exit Arts

  • Artist
Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) creates unforgettable events and participatory experiences using visual performance, processions, puppetry, music and pyrotechnics.

The company has a national and international reputation for excellent site specific and touring work, community and cultural celebrations and interactive performances in public spaces. Founded in 1980, EEA is a seminal arts organisation that has pioneered many strategic developments in outdoor arts. In the last decade we brought culturally diverse, collaborative work to outdoor arts festivals. EEA has a history of supporting and nurturing artists, many of whom now work across the outdoor arts sector. EEA has developed and sustained the Street Arts Academy across London and a new young generation of street performers is emerging from this programme. EEA uses outdoor arts as a means of engaging young people in an exploration of their relationship to public spaces and how they relate to the general public. The company has charitable status and was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in 1991. EEA is located within Rothbury Hall, at the base of the Greenwich peninsula in East Greenwich.
