IdeasTap workshop

We're excited to announce that we're running a workshop on 'Approaches to autobiographical theatre-making' for IdeasTap members in London on November 29.

We'll be exploring how we can use our own lived experiences - from the extraordinary to the everyday - to make theatre which is inventive and universal, giving an insight into how we made So It Goes and also borrowing from David's Lecoq training.

It's a free workshop is open to anyone with an interest in making theatre, professional or otherwise. You need to be a member of the IdeasTap network to sign up but that's also free and straightforward.

Sign up for the workshop here.

No Such Thing line-up announced!

We're delighted to announce the line-up for the next No Such Thing at the New Diorama Theatre on December 7 and 8.

We'll be featuring dance, mask and clown theatre, hand shadow puppetry, multimedia performance and spoken word.  David and Hannah will also be creating a brand new piece for the night, as part of a fantastic ensemble of Lecoq performers.

The full line-up...

Alicia Kidman presents Oscillations, a playful collaboration between dancers and live double bass.

Les Soeurs Souches, a slapstick duo fresh out of the Jacques Lecoq School in Paris, present Ka-Tchang! in which two warring sisters fight over loose change.

Finger and Thumb Theatre Company present dazzling hand shadow puppetry in Blues Bear.

Tom Wainwright brings Barry The Beaver, a no-nonsense poetry-slamming beaver.

Fye and Foul share Cathedral, an immersive audio piece to be experienced in near-darkness.

On The Run’s David Ralfe, in collaboration with Kristoffer Huball aka Milk Teeth (with help from a fabulous ensemble of performers) present Greek Tragedy, a darkly comic and partially deranged tribute to Western theatre’s most murderous genre.

No Such Thing is a home for bold, short-form theatre, curated by On The Run's David Ralfe and Rhum and Clay Theatre Company's Christopher Harrisson.  Twice a year, we put out an open call for applications and curate an eclectic line-up of short, self-contained pieces from across the theatrical spectrum.

We had an enormous number of responses, so thanks to everyone who applied to be a part of it.

The last No Such Thing sold out well in advance, so book ahead here!
