Flightpath Theatre is an independent theatre company lead by designer Katja Handt and director Michael Pigott, developing dramaturgical frameworks to articulate the contemporary experience. Fusing form and content in a style drawn from architecture, objects and personal stories, we explore ways to connect ideas and engage audiences— weaving text, movement and design into new forms of theatrical storytelling.
