Leading Lights are Lighthouse’s figurehead partnerships. These artists are already well established and are creating and producing inspirational work. By forging creative partnerships with these artists, we seek to support and champion excellence.

Diverse City and Extraordinary Bodies  are a dynamic social enterprise based in Dorset, working across the UK. We are proud to announce that they are now Associate Companies of Lighthouse. Diverse City are dedicated to revealing and celebrating diversity and equality of opportunity in the performing arts and their continued commitment to integrated circus is an inspiration to us and our work. Their young company, EBYA, are developing a new show entitled Becoming at Lighthouse. Its a story about growing up, being on a journey and travelling toward who you really are.

Gecko are an award-winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav. We were very excited to welcome them to Lighthouse and bring their visual, visceral, and ambitious theatre to Poole. Lighthouse is a proud partner in The Wedding, which toured here in October 2017.
