Shifting Sands Theatre is moving, comic and visually spectacular. The company has developed a reputation for creating a clown’s eye view of epic tales, classic texts as well as devising contemporary material. We perform all over Britain from village halls via outdoor festivals to large-scale theatres. All our work is based upon playfulness. Imagine Buster Keaton on stage at Stratford trying to be true to Shakespeare but with Laurel and Hardy directing. They play with the bard’s ingredients yet remain faithful to his themes. This is the guiding principle of our work. Theatre made playful, physical and visual for greater involvement, enjoyment and accessibility. There is irreverence but no parody. The result - potent drama!
