About Us

Pebble Gorge produce ambitious, exciting theatre based events for children and families by sending them on adventures to discover more about the world they live in. We are motivated to develop work for children, that is not based on traditional fairytales or book titles, but that explores real issues of the world they live in, in a way that is interactive and playful and above all lots of fun. We are interested in how the technology that children use every day, can be used alongside theatre techniques, to make engaging and exciting experiences.

Pebble Gorge is led by independent producers: Emily Coleman and Jane McGibbon.

Emily Coleman is an independent theatre maker and producer with expertise in work that explores the boundary between audience and performer. Emily also produces Hijack, a festival for children and families that presents cutting edge, participatory work for audiences in a variety of venues and public spaces and is producer for Spymonkey. She’s worked with The Future is Unwritten Bootworks, Hannah Walker and Chris Thorpe.

Jane McGibbon has over 20 years experience of developing work with and for young people, and has a keen interest in developing innovative ways to engage new young audiences, particularly through site specific and outdoor work. She established Ballyhoo Arts, making processional giants with young people and presented work at festivals across the UK. Jane currently works for Surrey Arts, and is associate producer for film for Pursued by a Bear. She is a member of the board for Strangeface Theatre. Jane is based near Eastleigh, and has worked on many youth focused community events and festivals in Hampshire and Surrey. Before working in the arts Jane was a maths and drama teacher and she has a degree in mathematics.

Together they develop creative ideas by collaborating with brilliant artists, scientists and technologists.
