Welcome, thanks for popping in...
Please check out these pages to see if there's
anything that might be of interest.
Here you'll find out about the alternative
work we have been doing since 2001.
Our efforts are around 4 themes:
Shakespeare ¦ Being ¦ Theatre ¦ Literature
Along the way, we've been extremely fortunate to have worked
with many, many people who have given their skills and time unstintingly, nearly always for little
or no financial benefit.
Taking risks, pushing back boundaries, and reaching deep into ourselves,
we will carry on until our work is complete.
Please click here if you'd like to support us; it can be as little as £5,
the price of a cup of coffee. As we go forward, we have so many
projects that we need/want to make happen.
We really appreciate your help and support.
Our Vision Statement
The Alternative Space exists to help people enrich their own
lives through the self-understanding coming out of our
alternative Shakespeare ¦ Being ¦ Theatre work.
About What We do...& How We Do it
We like to think of The Alternative Space as somewhere for people to
explore alternative ways of thinking, doing, and being,
Here, people are free to engage with our particular alternative way of going about things, centred around our Shakespeare, Being, Theatre, and Literature work.
We hope your curiosity about our work will help enrich your perspective on
the world about us, in a way that is both satisfying and exciting.

About What We do...& How We Do it
Question: What is BeingAlternative?
BeingAlternative is a turn of mind, an attitude of forever questioning/thinking,
a refusal to accept hand-me-down ways of understanding & being.
It’s about looking at everything we do in an alternative way.
It’s something where heart, mind, and soul come together.
Nothing is sacred, nothing is absolute; until it has been put through the relative mill that is being Alternative, it is merely one of many many alternatives. And it is our responsibility
to make the right decisions, and take the necessary actions. Nobody else’s.
We look at everything we do in an alternative way. We believe in being alternative,
allowing us to fundamentally shift our perspective, to focus on what
might be and not what is, what has always been.
Over the years, our growing disenchantment with the world around us is now a swell.
To put it in a nutshell, the world has gone to Hell in a handcart.
We believe a totally new, radical, alternative approach is needed.
All this is what BeingAlternative is about.
to help enrich everyone's understanding of ourselves...
In these four Spaces you can find things that might interest you;
observations, thoughts, questions, ramblings etc.

AlternativeShakespeare - splicing dicing Shakespeare
Where we splice and dice the works of William Shakespeare and in doing so
create new pieces that re-energise his themes, words, and
characters from an alternative point of view.
Self-knowledge generated through being part of our voyage of discovery through
AlternativeShakespeare & AlternativeTheatre,
Our focus on Shakespeare helps us define our unique take on Theatre;
for us, Theatre is more than just entertainment, primarily it
exists to help us better understand ourselves.
