About

STLtd is an interdisciplinary company that makes work that is urgent, playful and intimate.

Since 2012 we have made theatre shows, installations, workshop plans and radio work for pubs, clubs, shopping centres and performance spaces across the UK and the world. In 2016 we retraced a route of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle by Cargo ship and went on to create Salt, which has since toured to four continents and won three awards. In 2017 we were commissioned as part of 1418NOW to begin a major new work looking at radical futures for democracy in the wake of the Suffragettes. And in 2018 we began to write our first mid-scale musical work, bringing together a Hip Hop Icon and the dreams and energy of teenage girls from across the world. we slept a lot in 2019, but we’re back in 2020 with new dreams about new democracies, and race and gender after the end of the world.

The Company currently consists of Selina Thompson, Sarah Cruickshank and Toni-Dee Paul, supported by a team of collaborators and our board. We advocate for the rights of artists as workers, and better approaches to wellbeing in our industry. We make passionate, rigorous, political work, full of joy, but with a clear focus on those excluded by society at large.  We hope our work will always be characterised by ambition and integrity.
