See Saw is a Raleigh based company focusing on applied theatre projects in the NC Triangle. 



Applied theatre is...

Applied theatre utilizes theatre as a tool for social change, including community building, educating, and healing. It is often participatory, and practiced outside the traditional stage in community centers, prisons, hospitals, classrooms, and site specific locations.


See Saw leads applied theatre based projects in different settings and for a variety of communities including:


Interactive, Educational Theatre

We perform interactive pieces of educational theatre in schools and libraries. 


Professional Development

Using theatre and improvisation, we lead team building workshops with your organization or school to improve communication.



Creative Placemaking & Site Specific Performance

We create original, devised performance with community members and actors that activates public spaces. 


Playback Theatre for Senior Citizens

We hold storytelling workshops with seniors and use their stories to create a performance for them.


Arts Based Workshops for Healing and Recovery. 

Whether it's leading adult coloring sessions or improv comedy workshops, See Saw believes in the power of the arts to bring people together and to promote healing.
