Established in 1983 to develop and present local, national and international performance, greenroom is situated in two converted Victorian railway arches beneath Oxford Road railway station. Facilities include a fully resourced black-box style theatre seating up to 200, a studio style rehearsal room, exhibition facilities, a cafe/bar and offices.
greenroom is Manchester’s centre for new extraordinary performance: we support artists by providing resources and a safe space for the creation of new, experimental and contemporary performance. We present new work created at greenroom, and other new performance (including national and international work), to audiences in appropriate contexts. We also carry out small participation projects with the wider community, including children and young people, many who face disadvantage or exclusion. We encourage participants to be creative, and provide expertise, space and resources for discovery learning and expression.
