"really rather talented"
LONDON EVENING STANDARD
At Cyphers we make theatre that stimulates the imagination of its audience. We use a combination of choral story-telling, multi-roling casts and flexible design to create theatre that is charming, accessible and inclusive. Specialising in adaptations of classic texts, we seek to engage audiences with literature by creating a warm, relaxed environment where actors and audience come together to experience a story. Our adaptations are fresh, energetic and constantly changing to reflect the particular audience we have each night. Our productions use minimal technical elements, placing the emphasis on the relationship between the actors and the audience. As such, our shows can be performed anywhere from purpose-built theatres to village halls and churches.
As well as our main theatre work we aim to:
- share our approach, style and knowledge with the next generation of theatre makers.
- provide drama training that is affordable and accessible.
- provide quality training to business professionals to aid their vocal quality, clarity and confidence.
- keep ensemble and teamwork at the heart of everything we do, on and off the stage.
- make theatre more accessible to all.
Cyphers were delighted to receive support and mentorship from the English Touring Theatre as part of their ETT Forge programme in 2018.
