Mime because Corporeal Mime is at the base of all our creative work and we are fascinated by the idea of “making visible the invisible”. Theatre because we are telling stories. And as Karen Quigley (writer and drama lecturer at the University of York) wrote it about our work:
“The idea of being on the edge also implies a possible tipping point, a position from which one could fall into or step onto something else. Theatre Re has found a ‘something else’ and transformed an edge into a definite aesthetic and practice.”
To us this “something else” also refers to an improbable way of re-inventing and re-presenting the world with nothing.
Productions have toured nationally and internationally (France, Ireland, Germany and Switzerland) following sell-out hits at the London International Mime Festival, Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe.
Theatre Re has received support from Arts Council England, Arts Council Ireland, the French Institute in London, the city of Paris, the city of Lyon and Haringey Council (North London) to create international projects.
Theatre Re has been an Associate Company of South Hill Park Arts Centre since 2014.
