Inspired by Princess Mononoke, we are currently in Japan working on a expanding the company portfolio and facilitate other Anglo-Japanese collaborations. We are exploring adaptations of diverse source material such as Anime, Manga, video games and science fiction in pursuit of building a theatrical model that encourages new, more diverse audiences to the theatre. Princess Mononoke taught us of the potential of this new audience and of cross-cultural adaptation - we are in pursuit of this potential.
