Citrus Arts make work that flies between Theatre, Circus & Dance both indoors & outdoors.
We are Directors, Choreographers and Creative Partners with a great track-record in collaborating with fellow artists and organisations.
From large-scale spectacle to working with aspiring performers in our local community, we strive for excellence, originality and offer creative voices to the people we work with.
We are a South Wales based company founded in 2009 by Welsh artists James and Bridie Doyle-Roberts. Our shared backgrounds in circus, street theatre, drama and dance have afforded us opportunities to work alongside, and learn from some of the UK’s leading practitioners.
We pride ourselves on our collaborative attitude and ability to combine spectacle, physical skills and technical ingenuity to present artistically thoughtful and progressive shows of high quality. We work in partnership with local authorities, theatre producers, heritage organisations and festivals to create work that is artistically original and sensitive to the landscape and society of Wales.
Our work has been seen inside the fuselage of a DC-9 aircraft, in Welsh castles, over and under urban landmark bridges and in conjunction with three of the UK’s National Theatres (Southbank, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru & National Theatre Wales). We have held tenures as Artistic Directors of London Youth Circus and Associate Directors of Newport’s Big Splash festival.
