A SWINDONIAN WOMAN, A CUMBRIAN QUEER AND A WELSHMAN THAT MOVES.
Founded in a 2020 lockdown fever dream by graduates of the Acting and Contemporary Theatre course at East 15, SPRING-HEELED THEATRE CO. is a Swindon and London based theatre company, with roots in Cumbria and Wales, focusing on theatrical, collaborative and brash new writing.
We aim to centre female voices and expand small moments to give them the gravity they deserve through physical and spoken storytelling. Stripping away the layers of expectations that people have for each other, for historical figures, for people different from themselves to foster a sense of kinship and self-reflection.
Let’s mess around, play and inject ooky spooky, grimy and mythical ideas into the pulsing vein of theatre.
The Swindonian Woman
Louise is a rather short woman obsessed with dogs and reading labels out loud in supermarkets.
She is an actor, writer and producer.
The Cumbrian Queer
Rachael has a fact for every situation and earrings that put Pat Butcher to shame.
She is an actor, director and writer.
Lewis "Will" Williams
The Welshman That Moves
"Will" is having an identity crisis, the rest of us are having a crisis about his sense of humour.
He is an actor, movement director and all round good chap.
The Extended Family
a.k.a. our partners in crime
SPRING-HEELED would be nowere without our friends, so shout out to Sophie Walmsley, Theo Hung, Uri Roodner, Christopher Brett-Bailey, Shoebox Theatre and all of the CT class of 2021.
