Walking Elephant Theatre Company guides actors 7 to 17 years old out of the classroom and into real-world, project-based education experiences that connect them with their local and global communities to explore compelling social issues.

Cast members interview relevant community members about "the elephant in the room" - discrimination, bullying, homophobia, habits, special education - to create “word-for-word” documentary theatre and films.

These potent, moving, and hilarious plays and movies, made with integrity and economy, are then presented in theatres, schools, and film festivals around the world. 

We do this because it is the most effective approach to education we have ever experienced, and because we believe it fosters a world of empathic human beings at peace with each other and themselves.
