DREAD FALLS THEATRE
Creating imaginative worlds for adults and children
Dread Falls Theatre are proud makers of devised theatre; inspired by folk tales and fairy stories we combine puppetry, physical storytelling and unusual spaces to create magical and imaginative worlds.
We are theatre of the senses; expect colourful and creative sets, tactile puppets, lavish costumes, smell and scents that hang in the air, and stories told through space.
Since forming in 2011 we have combined the talents of theatre and events professionals to ensure we continue making high quality, risk-taking, and unique work, where audience experience is at the heart of what we do.
WHAT WE OFFER
We create versatile work that fits into a variety of performance spaces.
Our children's theatre is suitable for theatres, arts centres, and schools. Our immersive theatre has been performed in all sorts of unusual spaces; galleries, crypts, old police cells, a disused factory, and a cave!
In addition to our existing programme of work, we are also available for talks and bespoke workshops. A popular request by schools and festivals is our puppet making workshops.
Traditional theatres and pop-up venues are no strangers to us.
We've taken our children's shows and immersive theatre experiences across the UK. One time we performed in a crypt!
We perform at outdoor festivals across the UK with our children's shows and street theatre.
Our immersive shows have been programmed at a number of fringe festivals.
We also offer walkabout puppet acts.
We've worked hard to make a theatre-in-education programme of which we can be proud. Suitable for EYFS, KS1, and KS2.
On Wednesday, the children met the eccentric Professor Octavia and his two assistants. He told them all about his travels around the world to collect weird but wonderful creatures. He shared his marvellous findings with the children and called them on stage to have their fortunes told! It was a lively afternoon with lots of laughter, the show was thoroughly enjoyed by all who were watching.
