MOCO was born in the Bicycle Shop, one balmy afternoon in the late summer of 2016. The following spring, our first production 'A Clockwork Orange' by Anthony Burgess, opened at the Shoe Factory in Norwich with an all-male company of young actors aged between 18-25.
MOCO grew from years of research and a group of people excited to explore the relationship not only of the body and the text, but the space born between them. We are a creative outlet that allows us to embrace new possibilities and challenge our boundaries of performance and design.
2020 sees the launch of WOCO, a project open to any female-identifying person over 18. WOCO will articulate women's voices and share in their visions and story-telling.
We gratefully mark the third year of generous support
and encouragement from Hatch Brenner LLP, the
Theatre Street-based Solicitors. The ongoing sponsorship of a prominent local business allows us to be secure in planning our future.
