Battersea Arts Centre occupies an old town hall in the heart of Battersea and is renowned for making some of the most cutting-edge new theatre in the UK.
National newspapers state that BAC is "Britain’s most influential theatre" (The Guardian), "a dream factory generating the theatre of tomorrow" (The Times) and "definitely on the map of cultural powerhouses" (Daily Telegraph). This is due to a series of innovations like Scratch. Scratch enables artists to test ideas in front of an audience and listen to their feedback.
The birthplace of Jerry Springer the Opera and the first London venue to present Punchdrunk, BAC nurtures talented emerging artists and is renowned for making some of the most cutting-edge new work in the UK. BAC works with artists who question traditional forms of theatre and make work that often doesn’t start life with a script. Theatre that blurs genres, challenges our view of the world and thrives on experiment. BAC presents performances across 70 rooms in our old town hall: in theatre spaces, offices, down in the basement and up in the attic. We also have events that spill out of the building and onto the street: in schools, supermarkets, laundrettes, on boating lakes or online.
Housed in a Grade II* listed old town hall, BAC is a place where artists, audience, participants and staff can play a role in inventing the future of theatre.
