Asmalı Sahne London Ltd will be a company which provide premium theatre/arts consultancy services to theatre companies, actors, directors and other arts professionals. The consultancy services will be based on three main pillars, theatre/arts management, production and communications, which will include all aspects of the day-to-day management of a theatre/arts business, production stages such as play selection and translation, décor, costumes, casting, drama coaching and publicity/marketing.

Consultancy which speaks to both to their management and artistic sides is something that these (especially medium and small-sized) companies need in this critical juncture and it is where Ms. Kirboga Ciner’s business will come in.

Theatre consultancy, in the industry, has come to denote mainly the physical aspects of the business (auditorium planning and design, acoustics etc.).Although there are some companies which deliver that, there are hardly any which combines business management and the artistic components.

Asmalı Sahne is very strong on the production and creative drama side. As a successful and highly-educated art-directors experience, we can make a difference on the stage. Asmalı Sahne is a unique space with her current theatre by hosting or acting pioneering plays, most of which became their first productions in Turkey. This is not a coincidence. Asmalı Sahne does what is usually not done: Look for new plays, liaise with the playwrights, secure their rights to play, then translate, adapt and where necessary direct and produce them. We have contemporary Turkish playwrights data, translating their plays into English and adapting them for UK audiences.

We could also bring troupes and directors and other stage staff (décor, costumes, sound and light personnel) together for joint productions. We have a strong network both in Turkey and in the UK. with 0ur succesful background in theatre production, we have a unique position to create these collaborations.


Creative drama is valuable for teaching both skills and concepts to young children. Children play naturally, and much of their learning in the early stages of life comes from this active vicarious experience.
