o-region was co-founded in Cornwall in 2002 to explore new ways of telling stories through film and theatre, and support and encourage the work of local writers, directors, actors, artists and filmmakers.

Our members and collaborators have been involved with numerous projects across Cornwall and beyond, ranging from short films to full-length features, and from small-scale theatre shows to major national tours.

The company was founded by Carl Grose (Kneehigh, Radio 4, National Theatre) and Simon Harvey (Kneehigh / Blackfish / Rabbit Theatre), who is the company’s Artistic Director.

Other regular collaborators include Brett Harvey, Mark Jenkin, Ian Bucknole, Oliver Berry, Catherine Lake, Benjamin Dyson and Dogbite Film Crew.
