Reviews for Parabolic Theatre:

 

Our Work

Make Do and Mend

As Parabolic Theatre rebuilds after one of its most difficult and destructive periods in living memory, this season of work about beautiful things being made from limited resources sets a tone of hope triumphing in adversity.

The season will include a collection of wartime-inspired immersive pieces, some of which are brand new, and some of which had highly successful runs in London before the pandemic. The British Resistance Museum from Parabolic Theatre, Illicit Signals Bletchley from Mechanical Thought, Line of Fire from Cross-Stitch Theatre and Hidden Figures: WW2 from PartyGeek will all be part of Make Do and Mend. Further exciting shows from Parabolic Theatre as well as from companies that were to be at VAULT Festival will be announced in due course.

All of these shows will be presented at Parabolic's new home CRYPT

About

Parabolic Theatre has been at the forefront of fringe interactive experiences since 2016.

 

The work we make is beyond mere immersive spectacle and aims to tackle the social and political upheavals of our time, in creative and historically connected ways.

How would you deal with a large scale invasion, or influence a government in crisis, or approach a derelict ship floating in space?

Parabolic shows are highly interactive and responsive to audiences that choose to participate. We believe that audience agency is at the heart of what makes an experience immersive, and so we always try to offer the freedom to actively explore - interacting with the space, our performers and other audience members. Our audiences will always be given a purpose for being present within the show and have the capacity to influence the narrative and outcomes.

Led by Artistic Director, Owen Kingston, Parabolic welcomes a variety of artistic associates to collaborate on our shows and events, as writers, directors, designers and game masters.

Our work has recently been supported by the ACE/DCMS Culture Recovery Fund. Previous commissions have included Croydon Council, Croydonites Festival, and Aimhigher London.

If you are interested in working with us, or commissioning us, or you just want to find out more about our work, then please feel free to get in touch via our contact form below.
