We are a Visual Folk Theatre ensemble creating female-led action adventure stories and exciting community events in Surrey and Cambridgeshire.
Glimmer Theatre seek to unearth stories that haven't been told but that need to be heard. We want to smash open secret histories and rediscover people whose input into our country - and our culture - have been forgotten.
We believe in “A Rich Theatre by Little Means”: that the power of theatre lies in the imagination of its audience. We want to tell epic stories with exuberant movement, beautiful lighting, engaging performers and big-hearted music.
Alongside our devised theatre projects, Glimmer Theatre has its fingers in lots of other pies. Held monthly, ’Patterned Ground’ provides a friendly environment for artists to perform new music and writing; The ‘Cabareilidh’ offers a biannual evening of wild ceilidh dancing fused with the best cabaret acts in London; and finally, we are currently pioneering our version of the traditional folk Singaround which focusses on encouraging young people to get involved in music through communal singing.
