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

Curates and commissions bespoke theatrical events for Bristol
Produces and develops new work by artists who we find inspiring
Invites the most exciting makers we can find to present and play in the city

MAYK is the theatre producing partnership of Kate Yedigaroff and Matthew Austin. We’ve been working together for the last few years, and we’re the Directors of Bristol’s contemporary theatre festival Mayfest.

Some of our projects are curated events and collaborations with other organisations (Mayfest is one of these); some are new work we develop with artists we’re excited by, some are projects where we invite artists making inspiring work to present that work in Bristol and collaborate with Bristol-based artists. And sometimes we break our own rules.
