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.

Back to school everyone!


We hope that you have all had a creative and safe summer, and are now raring to go for lots of new adventures.


There are lots of chances to come and see us perform across London, including Newham Word Festival in November, and artsdepot in October.


We will also be working with Early Years, KS1 and KS2 young people across the UK, using creativity to explore our communication, confidence and well-being.



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


After a very busy summer chasing some pesky Gnomes at artsdepot, a multi-sensory circus in Sussex and then a week playing with new ideas. Keep an eye out for our social media for lots of photos and regular up to date information.


We will have a brand new show to be premiered on 23/8/17. Will you be there?


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 covered last year!


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.
