Freelance Performers, Puppeteers & Workshop Facilitators, Dread Falls Theatre


Dread Falls Theatre are proud makers of devised theatre; inspired by folk tales and fairy stories we combine puppetry, physical storytelling and unusual spaces to create magical and imaginative worlds. Since forming in 2011 we have combined the talents of performers, musicians, puppeteers and puppet makers, set and costume designers, composers, and multimedia artists to ensure we continue making high quality, risk-taking, and unique work, where audience experience is at the heart of what we do.

This year we launched our theatre in education programme where we help bring the curriculum to life through drama, dance and music. Our work engages children from primary, special and independent schools. All our shows come with optional workshops and teachers notes, so the creative learning can continue long after we've left the building.

Dread Falls Theatre are looking for enthusiastic, trustworthy, and motivated performing artists based in London and the Home Counties to join our pool of cast and crew for theatre, schools, and festival work in the South East.

This position is perfect for actors, dancers, circus performers, and puppeteers looking for flexible and freelance performance opportunities.
