Flabbergast Theatre sets out to make uncompromising exciting physical theatre drawing on the Bunraku style of puppetry and a belief that all theatre should be engaging and sweaty. We endeavour to create theatre through an extensive and collaborative research and development process using performers from many disciplines including dance, clowning, acting and puppetry, we develop existing texts and new devised pieces bringing an innovative and unpretentious approach to our work.
