Matipo is an arts company: “We make theatre. We make conversations. We make stories and we make friends.”


Matipo creates and produce events, installations and theatre productions. A main focus is on new stories and collaboration. Matipo believes in the innate value of creativity and wants to use it to unlock the power of people.

Matipo was founded by sisters Sally and Georgia Hardcastle. They strive to create work that subverts the norms of theatre, while keeping it accessible and entertaining. Matipo is dedicated to new material and to having fun. 

As part of Essex 2020 Matipo designed and delivered a programme of STEAM activities for children called STEAM On!. A new video with accompanying activity sheets was released for every day of the summer holidays. Visit our Resource page to find out more and access these fabulous and fun activities.
