Art, theatre and performance.

Engaging communities.

Getting people talking.

The Cognito People are a small collective of young artists, writers and performers based in the UK. We use art, theatre and performance to create innvoative experiences that engage a wide range of communities, exploring and challenging current issues.

Since 2012 we've created installation art, supported young writers, devised performance work and facilitated theatre-in-education worshops. We've challenged mental health stigma, worked within LGBT communities, and delivered work in primary and secondary schools.

This is just the start.

"The aftershock of this performance is enduring. This work is not only entertaining, but completely necessary in a world where these things are so rarely talked about. "
