Four Shadows Theatre is run by Chris Andrade and Richard J Wade and has been creating work since 2010. Offering new and exciting work to a wide audience base we create innovative and ambitious devised performances.
Specialising in making performance for small venues and non-traditional performance spaces, we create work in response to people, existing stories and, historical events. The work is beautiful, captivating and fun, playing with pop culture and context, utilising live music, singing and dance, to create engaging and accessible theatre. Telling stories is at the heart of what we do, using comedy, tragedy, excitement and loss within each narrative to create a moving and uplifting atmmosphere for our audience.
The company was founded in 2010 during an artistic/cultural exchange in Regina, Canada. It was created in reaction to the limitations of theatre as an academic subject, with its core focus to present work nationally and internationally. The company began with five people making our first show, 'Out In The Cold', two Canadians and three Brits. Rich and Chris, now Co-Artistic Directors, joined the company when it returned to the UK. Since then the company has presented work in unusual locations to a vast erray of people.
