THE S+K PROJECT
The S+K Project (S+K) is a theatre and performing arts company, co-founded and run by Malakaï Sargeant, after being frustrated at a lack of inclusivity and representation in the creative industries. Our mission is simple: to make the arts for everyone – and we've been doing this ever since our inception in September 2014. We are currently Resident Company at Bernie Grant Arts Centre, a community arts centre in Tottenham, North London, and have been Associate Artists with Talawa Theatre Company since January 2018.
Since launching we have gone on to write, direct and produce almost a dozen productions, with a focus on pushing the boundaries of the form of theatre as well as producing meaningful participatory projects.
Outside of our theatre and artist development work, we produce talks, networking and performance events, as well as an annual festival which aims to bring together marginalised voices in society, allowing them to express themselves through the vehicle of the arts. We have and continue to partner with a range of organisations – from youth centres and arts clubs, to theatres like Battersea Arts Centre and internationally operating charities like LIFT – to provide opportunities to people who are not well represented in the performing arts industry.
With a combined reach of over 7,500 people with all of our work through live events, and hundreds of thousands digitally, individuals we have developed have gone on to work with the likes of Tamasha Theatre Company, Frantic Assembly, Contact Theatre, the Royal Court and the National Theatre.
"INSTEAD OF EXPECTING CHANGE TO HAPPEN
WE WANTED TO BE THAT CHANGE."
Malakai Sargeant, artistic director (2018)
