Tacky Pioneer is an emerging London-based collective of theatre makers hailing from China, England, and the USA who met while studying on the MA Advanced Theatre Practice course at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Our work explores the clash between pathos and absurdity, balancing the intellectual and the physical, the epic and the mundane. We are driven by a shared interest in experiential research and task-based processes. Individually, our work has been seen on the West End, Off-Broadway, at the National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe, The Kennedy Center, Sydney Opera House and on stages and non-stages in London, New York City, Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Shanghai. Our inaugural production Astronaut Battery premiered in September 2017 at the Chelsea Theatre.
