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:

We are doing an ONLINE FESTIVAL! This includes a 2-week free streaming of our first dark comedy Beyond Cragporth Rock plus 4 workshops taught by us, including drama for kids, movement and mobility, creating a character and Drama in Italian. To sign up for these and for the vimeo link to the show, go to this link here. All workshops are pay what you can, donations will go to our fundraiser (see video below).

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are now in a difficult position, having seen huge losses because of cancelled tours, workshops and rehearsals. We are doing an emergency fundraiser, the link to which is here, and the video below:
