Gobbledegook make innovative, cross-artform work for unusual places. With theatre at its core, our live performance, music and installation work is frequently inspired by Earth Sciences, and almost always takes place outdoors.
As theatre artists our guiding principal is to create or facilitate work which 'renders the familiar strange' for audiences – be it on a seafront promenade, in public gardens, festival fields, school corridors or playgrounds. We believe very strongly in play for people of all ages; the link between theatre, playing and making stories is very close indeed. We are touring two shows in 2019, Ear Trumpet and Cloudscapes.
We also believe strongly in the power of Disruption and Joy.
Artist and activist Lorna Rees is the Artistic Director of Gobbledegook Theatre.
