Haste Theatre: Mission Statement

Haste: Urgency of movement or action

Haste is a unified force of 5 women who create fantastical worlds to portray the everyday. We are multilingual actors, clowns, dancers, creators, puppeteers, singers and friends.

We are united with an urgency to celebrate the vulnerability and unpredictability of live performance. We use our patchwork of disciplines to reinvent old stories and create new ones.

Our shows sit in the uncomfortable place between laughter and tears. Fusing comedy and tragedy, the ugly and the beautiful – we shock, stimulate and entertain. We create magic through simplicity and haunting harmonies. Our playfulness and energy is infectious.

What are we up to:

After completing an exciting new project with a youth group in Milton Keynes, we are now busy working on our NEW SHOW! To do this, we are heading off in style to Milan in November for two weeks to do a residency there. Watch this space for news of our projects lined up for next year including a Spring tour of Ex-Batts and Broilers and a European fringe festival tour of our new show!

We are also hosting a variety night at Streatham Space Project on 11th December with acts ranging from stand up to burlesque. For tickets click here.
