Imaginari Theatre is a contemporary theatre company passionately committed to firing up children's creativity and wellbeing.
Our mission is to craft innovative educational programmes, captivating shows, and immersive experiences for young audiences and families, seamlessly blending puppetry, storytelling, and cutting-edge insights into children's mental health.
Emerging research underscores the intricate connection between children's emotional health and their capacity for imaginative exploration. Puppetry offers a unique and multifaceted approach to promoting children's mental health and wellbeing, fostering emotional, social, cognitive, and creative development. We aim to provide a vibrant and safe 'rehearsal' space for children and families to cultivate essential emotional and interpersonal skills, such as self-confidence, creativity, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, communication, teamwork, empathy and an insatiable hunger for learning.
We firmly believe that every child, regardless of their personal or socio-economic circumstances, deserves access to the tools that unlock their boundless creative potential and equip them for life-long success. To achieve this vision, we forge partnerships with schools and children’s organisations, striving to extend our reach and impact to as many young minds as possible.
Playing, creating and sharing stories are key activities for children’s wellbeing. Imaginative play offers a comprehensive way of supporting children's physical, cognitive and social-emotional development. Check out how imagination can be a gateway for Curiosity, Creativity, Collaborative Skills, Confidence, Connection and Critical Thinking.
We believe that all children have the right to develop their full creative potential, and we dream of a world where each can do so. If you have this dream too, join our cause today.
