The Asylum is Kneehigh’s bespoke venue, providing an exciting space to perform our own shows and to host our friends and collaborators. It is a pop-up palace for fun, hope and escape. It is a sanctuary where we can come together to tell stories, to dance, to eat, to drink and celebrate.
This summer, the Asylum will be in an exciting new location… We’re on the beach!
Join us for a festival-tinged summer season of live theatre, music, food and drink on Carlyon Beach in the heart of St Austell Bay.
15 Aug – 1 Sept Tuesday – Sunday 7.30pm
A sing-along satire “ The show simmers delicately on the edge of chaos. This is Kneehigh going back to their roots as exuberant physical performers and it is both joyous and immensely skilful ”
A fabulous mini festival that celebrates exciting work from our close collaborators. We wanted the shows to celebrate togetherness, inclusivity and strength in numbers – and we’re proud to say that every show on offer stands in defiance to these mad, mixed-up times we’re currently living in.
