From The Ǝncore Theatre Company

Institute of Health & Social Care

Our home base is the Institute of Health & Social Care at London South Bank University where we are the resident theatre company. We support both the School Of Allied And Community Health and the School Of Nursing & Midwifery. We also work across the campuses at Southwark, Essex and Croydon.

We are involved in co-creating and co-delivering aspects of learning and teaching within health and social care courses, particularly where our experiences and expertise in performance can be utilised. Although we do a lot of role play to enable the students to interact with real people, we are also involved in many other activities where drama and performance skills can be used, and this is shown in our Project List below.
