We, The Knotted Project, are a physical theatre company based in North West England established & directed by two of us, Simon McElligott & Natalie Morrell.
We began working together during our training at East 15 Acting School & each graduated with a BA in Physical Theatre. It was a superb course with an extremely diverse syllabus. Working with and directed by leading artists and practitioners in the industry, we gained skills in Mask, Commedia dell'Arte, Aerial Circus, Mime & many more disciplines.
As we graduated & entered the professional industry, we were driven to make our own theatre with a unique identity. Since 2013, we have built a fantastic network & gained a strong reputation for delivering original, innovative theatre with a unique style & inimitable sense of humour in the North of England. Collaboration is a huge part of what we do & we are very proud to connect with leading artists & venues in the North West, pushing us to achieve our goals. We are very proud to have been funded by Arts Council England on a number of projects, including International Residencies & UK Tours.
At The Knotted Project, we also pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality creative learning activities. We are extremely passionate about this work & firmly believe in the power of creative education & freedom of expression.
