simple8 is an award-winning ensemble company who specialise in creating worlds out of nothing – producing innovative, bold new plays that tackle big ideas using large casts.
Focused on the ensemble and using a variety of techniques – physical theatre, mime, live music and song, puppetry and magic – we put on new plays that are inventive, original and daring.
THE STYLE IS BOLD, THEATRICAL, FAST AND PHYSICAL
The ensemble ethos is vital to the way we work. We only produce new plays, and undertake extensive research and development for each project, giving every member of the ensemble creative ownership over each production.
We have produced seven productions to date, all focusing on this unique ethos and all progressing our understanding of how an ensemble works.
