Moving Stories – Home

Twelfth Night - The Minack TheatreWelcome – thanks for visiting us! Moving Stories is home to a group of passionate theatre and event makers, that enable stories to be shared and heard, and engages audiences in an immersive theatrical event.

tempest12We aim to awaken the senses and stimulate the emotions by creating bold, ambitious and beautiful work for both theatres and unusual locations and sites.

We specialise in creating theatre that can’t be forgotten. We have created theatrical events in bedrooms, castles, amphitheatres, a damp basement of a famous Warsaw rock music venue, Borough Market, a betting shop in Hammersmith (as well as  the Southwark Playhouse, Riverside Studios, Minack Theatre and Bristol Old Vic). Most importantly, we seek to engage people on a human level and create theatre that can connect us back together again.

‘The Winter’s Tale’ by William Shakespeare

Our latest large scale production was an exciting new musical version of Shakespeare’s ‘The Winter’s Tale’, featuring original musical composition by Paul Barker, Direction by Emma Gersch, Design by Kate Unwin and Movement by Kitty Randle.  We enjoyed a fantastic response to our run in May at the Embassy Theatre (Central School of Speech and Drama), and it went on to play to sold out houses at the world renowned world renowned Minack Theatre in July IMG_5197

A flavour of what we love to do…

In August 2014 we were commissioned by the London Southbank Centre to develop a wild theatrical event based on Shakespeare’s favourite fairy play for the Festival of Love. We took over the centre  with our fresh, bold and colourful adaptation of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ which took place on the Riverside Terrace. Through the day, we ran mass workshops for anyone who wanted to join in, and willing folk learned songs, dances and choral verse from the show and were then invited to join in during the performance! We had a fabulous day, and hundreds of people of all ages came to see the final show which was supported by the 40 strong Voicelab choir, and was followed by live carnival music from Kinetico Blocko. Check out this video to see the mischief we created.
