For 35 years Kneehigh have created vigorous, popular and challenging theatre, with a joyful anarchy. We have performed everywhere from village halls to castles, disused quarries to conventional stages all over the world. From our breath-taking barns in Cornwall we create theatre of humanity on an epic and tiny scale. Led by Mike Shepherd, we work with an ever-changing bunch of talented and like-minded perfomers, artists, makers and musicians and are passionate about the creative process. The Asylum, a beautiful nomadic structure, is home to theatre, fun and good old-fashioned Kneehigh knees-ups. The annual pop-up is taking a rest this year but will be back in 2018. Alongside major productions and tours we also run the Kneehigh Rambles – fun adventures and magical events with communities in Cornwall and beyond.
About Walk With Me
Explore Cornwall in a new way with Kneehigh’s story-walk app. Walk With Me is a FREE app that gives you access to stories by award-winning Cornish theatre company Kneehigh. The stories have been collected around Cornwall, reimagined (sometimes wildly exaggerated), to make a highly entertaining, and often moving, experience – a living landscape rooted in real people and places. Plug in and listen as you enjoy a walk – GPS magic will trigger tales in specific places as you explore, or sit back at home and listen in ‘armchair mode’. The collection of funny, magical and often moving stories has been voiced by actors and local people. You can also watch some of the stories brought to life in short animations, voiced by Dawn French, at www.kneehigh.co.uk The app simple to download and a lovely listen, so grab your phone and enjoy a walk with Kneehigh.
