About found THEATRE.

The company began in 2004 on the remote Greek island of Ikaria, where I had taken three actors to work in a variety of natural settings; seashore, forest, moonlit mountain top, cave. We created our first theatre piece, The Fisherman and his Soul from these experiences, incorporating found objects on a starkly simple set.
A sense of place, actual or imagined, remains central to the work.
To quote from my founding statement, the company aims “to create the magic of theatre through the engagement of Imagination in both artists and audience… set ourselves the challenge of creating theatre from the most basic of resources, believing that, by limiting resources, we enlarge Imagination…to explore the nature of theatre itself, starting from the most basic principles -
the physical presence of actor and spectator; the sense and use of ritual that is the root of all theatre; the need to tell stories – to be open to the gifts of chance; this is the meaning of “found theatre”… each moment of performance is to be a new discovery.”

Now based in the heart of Derbyshire’s Peak District, the company continues to create fresh and innovative work, often in collaboration with other artists, companies and venues.
