Handprint Theatre make the boring bizarre. Using puppetry, physical theatre, British Sign Language and a combination of anything they can get their hands on, the company strive to make the mundane into mayhem.


Handprint create theatre and education projects which are accessible to both Deaf and Hearing audiences not segregating but allowing all to see performances which communicate across language, disability or culture.

Wow 2017 has started with a very busy Handprint Team!


We started the year working with Early Years, KS1 and KS2 young people across East London. Students were able to teach our actors to work together and reminding us that

we can all spread kindness in our communities.


We completed another great project with students at Acland Burghley school in North London, whereby we were incredibly impressed by our transition students, who were able to perform and lead activities for younger peers in other local schools.


2017 is looking to be very exciting with several brand new projects which we hope to share with you soon.


New international partnerships will allow us to continue to share ideas and expertise with likeminded companies across the world, whilst being able to explore how creative teaching can inspire young people across cultures.


We also will be working on a brand new show, which is a very special collaboration - more details to be revealed soon...


We continue to create youth projects which can be toured across the UK to both Deaf and hearing young people. Traditional tales - storytelling, Deaf Awareness, history projects, devising, social media safety, youth identity and school transition are just a few of the projects we have covered recently!


As always we love to find creative ways to teach the curriculum,

so do contact us with any tricky topics - we love a challenge!


Please look at our education pages for more information and workshops.
