"Shared Experience are in a league of their own"

Time Out

Shared Experience

Shared Experience has been instrumental in pioneering a distinctive performance style that celebrates the union of physical and text-based theatre. We are committed to creating theatre that goes beyond our everyday existence, giving form to the hidden world of the psyche/emotion and imagination. We seek to explore the relationship between the world we inhabit and our inner lives.

Text and language plays a major part in our productions as we strive to offer our audience not only visual excitement, but also deep emotional engagement and intellectual stimulus.

We see the rehearsal process as a genuinely open forum for asking questions and taking risks that redefine the possibilities of performance. At the heart of the company's work is the power and excitement of the actors physical presence and the collaboration between actor and audience - a shared experience.
