Replico was founded in 1997 as a production facility to support Higher Still Drama, before branching out into wider lifelong learning contexts. Originally established for small-scale school tours, the company has since established a capacity for digital media production and commercial theatre. Our principal activity remains strategic support for schools, colleges and local authorities, through a wide range of workshops for pupils and students of all ages, training for staff, lecture demonstrations and bespoke resource materials.
In recent years the company has developed an international profile, having taken part in study visits, conferences and research projects in Reggio Emilia, Milan and Venice and offering specialist support in classical theatre for summer schools in Ferrara. In Scotland, our work is currently focused on developing creativity across learning, primarily in the context of the Scottish Attainment Challenge with a strong emphasis on literacy.
Artistic Director and Replico founder Joe Gallagher has over thirty years experience in theatre, TV and radio as an actor, director, producer and technician, but also works part time as a cultural coordinator for East Ayrshire Council, working closely with schools and senior education management staff, allowing a unique insight to arts education in Scotland.
