We are Hijinx.
We work from Wales but reach the whole world. We make strikingly different theatre.
We are unashamedly ambitious for our Hijinx Actors. We want to see a learning disabled and/or autistic actor win an Oscar by 2030.
Why we do what we do
We don’t work with learning disabled and/or autistic people because it’s the right thing to do (which it is), or because everyone deserves access to a rich cultural life (which they do). We work with them because our understanding of humanity is enriched when we view the world from a different perspective.
We cast Hijinx Actors because of their ability, not despite their disability.
Our theatre is fearless and without boundaries.
We make theatre that is original, surprising, edgy and funny, which reaches audiences in Africa, Europe, America and East Asia.
Our Hijinx Actors are at the heart of everything we do. They make us reimagine the world. They demonstrate their strength, fragility, volatility and playfulness through their performances.
We give a platform to people who have been marginalised and overlooked in society for too long.
We give voice to political and social issues relating to learning disability and neurodivergence, which speak to everyone. We strive for equality of representation on stage and screen.
We change the lives of hundreds of neurodivergent people in Wales and impact their families, networks and communities for good.
Our headquarters is at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.
