“Becoming a part of the company gave me a chance to challenge my artistic practice. In a short space of time my assumed skills were tested and expanded in to new skills. There was a heartwarming sense of community, because of the way the whole team worked together to create an experience that was exciting and engaging for the audience.”

“I gained confidence in myself again as an actor who can dabble in movement and physical theatre something I’d really lost since graduating drama school as I wasn’t a dancer which is what I thought you needed to be to be a physical theatre performer! I learnt so much from being part of the festival, not only how supportive the community of Physical Fest is but the breadth of talent too. I was so inspired by the different shows we two were alike and yet there were things from each one I learnt and took away. “
