“A company that combines precise physicality, an engaging and highly accessible performance style and a developed political consciousness.”

Displace Yourself Theatre are an ambitious young devising company that use the power of movement to shine light on the shadows of society. The Socio-Political work is reflected in Displace Yourself’s distinctive form using projection, live performers, minimal props and precise energetic movement scores that disobey traditional theatre conventions. At the heart of their productions lies a thorough and intimate process of devising, working closely with the people that their productions are about, providing a platform for under-represented communities to use theatre as a way to have their voices heard. Involving the audience at all stages of the show’s development through live events, discussions and workshops is as important to Displace Yourself as the show itself.

We believe that by working to create vigorous and challenging productions, we can provide a catalyst for change.
