Undercurrent is a London-based theatre company who unearth extraordinary real life stories with fearless imagination. We gather oceans of material which are interrogated, filtered and moulded into exhilarating and aesthetically bold experiences for audiences across the U.K. Specialising in research-based performance, Undercurrent’s artistic process centres around a piece of rigorous research and includes weeks of development time which brings the design team into the heart of the collaborative process.
Undercurrent are the first Associate Theatre Company of the British Library (2017-18), supported by Arts Council England.
