Malaika (Max) Cunningham

Theatre Director

I am a theatre practitioner and political researcher based in Sheffield. My background is a mix of working with various forms of experimental theatre and research into the ways in which art and politics interact.

I am presently working with Cardboard Citizens as a trainee facilitator to explore Forum Theatre method. I am the Artistic Director of The Bare Project theatre company with whom I am currently working on a mix-media clown piece ‘Bardo’ by Joseph Houlders. I completed the Clore Emerging Leaders Programme in Spring 2015.

In 2013 I co-founded the Sheffield Chapter of What Next?, which helped to establish the Creative Guild and now sit on the board for the Sheffield Creative Guild. I am also a board member for Arts and Society CIC and Bank Street Arts.
