Who We Are

Who We Are

Matipo Arts was founded by sisters Sally and Georgia Hardcastle. In April 2021 we formally registered as a Community Interest Company and brought on board three amazing Non-Executive Directors. We strive to create work that subverts the norms of theatre, while keeping it accessible and entertaining. We are dedicated to new material and to having fun. Come and join the family.


Georgia Hardcastle

Georgia is a writer, director and facilitator based in London, working across East Anglia.


Her directing practice includes fringe new writing, devising, and youth and community productions. Her process is collaborative, playful and considered. Her work has been staged at venues including The Garage, Harlow Playhouse, The Space Arts Centre, The Bread & Roses Theatre and The Redbridge Drama Centre.
