Fox & Hawk Theatre
At Fox & Hawk, our mission is a clear but vital one, to breathe new life into theatre, wether that new life comes from new writing, old writing, devising, dancing, singing or plain and simple chaos is simply for the company to decide.
The three founding members, Eliza Rose, Declan McLaughlin and Lewis Hinckley Keens, met whilst undergoing their acting training at the prestigious East 15 Acting School on the BA (Hons) World Performance course, a course which aims to apply world theatre training and styles into up and coming theatre artists from all walks of life.
During their time at East 15, the three collaborated on numerous projects together (The Air Raid, The Wedding Dress etc.) One key element of theatre they took away from their time at the school was the importance of being entertained. This seems like a given in the theatre world but so many dramatists overlook the simple fact that every moment in the theatre should be visually, audibly and kinaesthetically beautiful, endearing and entertaining.
This is Fox & Hawk's aim, wether working with text, no text, music or no music... to make theatre interesting and, more importantly, accessible. Through studying world theatre styles (African dance and percussion, Bharanatyam dance, Noh theatre, Kabuki, Forum Theatre, Le Coq, Beijing Opera, Balinese Arts, various mask forms also studying a repertoire of world texts).
Fox & Hawk have learned a great deal about the theatre world outside of the United Kingdom and as such have a wide variety of skills and techniques in which to not only make their pieces aesthetically beautiful but to make world theatre a more ready presence on the British stage.
