We tell stories.
Every culture, every society. We tell stories to try and understand who we were and who we might yet become. These are the folktales that never were. That might still be. Improvised stories of the ordinary and the extraordinary. Of everyday lives and the magic that bleeds from their edges.
In NeverFolk, we’ll create improvised theatre that is funny and heartbreaking, wise and foolish. We’ll explore physicality, narration and ensemble movement, and we’ll use these tools to tell entirely improvised fables and folk stories that feel authentic and timeless. Stories that live for a glorious moment and then never again.
