About Six Lips Theatre
Six Lips Theatre is an independent physical theatre company inspired by and taking influence from areas of visual arts. Our aim is to create theatre which is evocative, resonant, playful and lasting, everything is enveloped in the “lovingly made”, handcrafted and original. Six Lips Theatre produce original written and devised works as well as re-imagining existing texts through distinctive, interpretive exploration.
Whether working in a devising process or on existing text, the company’s works are consistently thoughtful and concept-driven, with a strong focus on methods of storytelling and accessibility. Both process and performance have empathy and honesty at the heart; initiating discussion between performers in process, and between storyteller and audience in performance.
The work generation methodologies follow a pattern of play; respond, reflect, respond. Ensemble-driven, process and product are collaborative and organic. Six Lips Theatre work in collaboration with a variety of artists and organisations currently focusing on emotional well-being and female experiences.
