'Jumblies expands where art happens, who gets to be part of it, what forms it takes and which stories it tells. This impulse has led us outside of specialized art places, and to place participants at the core of our projects, as a bridge between artists and audience. We say “Everyone is welcome!” and grapple with the implications – social and aesthetic – of trying to mean it.
We adapt, combine and play with forms of theatre and arts production placed in new situations, with equal attention to all stages (before, during, after). Our performances and presentations, albeit highly-produced, are steps in a process, whose ultimate product is the experience, the change wrought, and the memory – the transient micro-utopia and its after-effects.'
