theatre nomad brings together theatre makers from around the world working in a variety of theatrical traditions to reinterpret classic texts and create new theatre for new audiences and new situations.
The company’s work has been characterised by interests in gender, multi-culturalism, and making theatre in unconventional spaces. Productions have included ground-breaking all-female stagings of Macbeth and Hamlet, an exploration of the queer in Shakespeare with Shakesqueer, and a site-specific Uncle Vanya set in the music room of an English country house.
The nomads tour the globe - from South Wales to Siberia, Canada to the Cape of Africa, China to the Balkans. The company has performed in the Shakespeare Gardens in Paris, high up in the Bavarian Alps, in a ruined church as part of the International Shakespeare Festival in Gdansk, at The Hong Kong City Festival and across South Africa. Productions have been seen by more than 45,000 people in more than 150 different venues in 14 countries.
