Kneehigh is a band of brave storytellers that makes theatre and takes risks.
Kneehigh is artist-led and takes the conditions of creativity seriously. It has a sense of family, looks to challenge and entertain, and balances freedom of expression with rigorous craft.
Kneehigh is political and creates theatre of humanity on an epic and tiny scale. Based in Cornwall in breath-taking barns on the south coast, Kneehigh looks to the world for inspiration and tells stories that reflect the world.
Kneehigh defies expectation and breaks the rules. It celebrates non theatre going audiences and unconventional spaces, embraces inclusivity, and believes in a sense of event.
