Matipo is a new multi-arts company co-founded by Sally and Georgia Hardcastle in 2018. Their debut theatre production Fleeced opened at the Bread and Roses Theatre in August 2018 and later transferred to The Space. 2019 has seen the R&D phase of their latest project, Hot House, culminating in a rehearsed reading at the Crossrail Place Roof Garden, Canary Wharf.

Matipo is a multi arts company, building creative communities through immediate, entertaining and authentic work. We believe enjoying great art isn’t about taste, it’s about access. Collaborative facilitation and multi-disciplinary practice is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to new material and to having fun.


Matipo uses collaborative facilitation not only to develop our professional work, but to engage and provoke the creativity of our key stakeholders. These consist of local communities, young people, emerging artists and those without previous access to the arts. We believe that by putting value on imagination, society creates the people that will give back to it the most.
