MAYK is a theatre producing organisation that collaborates with artists and audiences to make exciting things happen in unusual ways.



120 artists from all over the world, 25 productions, 7 premieres, hundreds of participants and thousands of audience members. Here's a look back on those eleven heady days in May when we celebrated 15 years of the unexpected. Film by Phoebe Holman Films.
