Founded in 2014, Fool's Cap Theatre is an international company creating performance rooted in a physical and visual aesthetic.
We focus on the body as a channel to convey meaning and to generate metaphors. We believe movement can tell stories. Through a consistent physical training based on corporeal mime technique, we seek the simplicity and precision in the gesture, where the minimum expresses the most. The visual aspects of our work comes from our ethos in making performances more accessible to a wider range of audiences. Although we can and will use text in our shows, it's not a primary element. By creating a visual landscape that moves and transforms the space, we aim to take the audience into a dream-like world.
