SharkLegs are an award winning
visual theatre company formed in 2014.
We have mounted 5 full length productions, and our work has been featured on BBC Breakfast, and Radio 4. We have also appeared in The Guardian Newspaper and the podcast 'We are Women' talking about our work, as well as playing to sell out audience across the UK.
Our work is poignant, silly and innovative ... (with more
references to 80's cartoons and electro-swing than is perhaps healthy.)
We make creative work for the creative audience - in practice this means that we find new ways to explore the links between the performer and the audience, finding ways of harnessing, encouraging and elucidating the creativity within our audiences' lives.
We strive to find new ways to connect the audience with the creation and realisation of performance work - from hooking our audience up to heart-rate monitors and using their heartbeats to influence the narrative, to asking our audience to craft items that our heroes need to achieve their goals - our work is built from the audience, placing them and their creativity front and centre:
theatre that is made with an audience, not just for them.
It is our mission to make creative work for the creative audience: work which inspires audiences to find their own creativity and look at the world in a new way – to see the robot in the cardboard box or the paper puppet in the copy of the Metro.
