Welcome to Vanishing Point

Vanishing Point creates new theatre for modern audiences. Our work begins with a curiosity – an idea or a story we are interested in diving into.

We like the ordinary to
become extraordinary
and the extraordinary
to become ordinary,
creating a reality like
our own but different
- dreamlike, dark,
mysterious and beautiful.

In these dream worlds,
there are echoes of our own existence,
our own conflicts and battles,
but there are no answers.

Our work focuses on visual, action-based theatre, combining performance with multimedia. We are interested in how action, rather than words, tells stories. The work is visual, filmic, evocative and impressionistic.

We work through collective collaboration, with performers, designers, musicians, film-makers and artists. Each element of the work fuels and inspires the others.
