Anima Theatre Company is a group of European writers, directors and actors focused on experimental theatre and new writing. As a company, we are interested in inclusive theatre, giving voice to those who struggle to be heard and always attempting to bring people to theatre who may never otherwise come into contact with it. We are pro collaboration, conversation and connectedness.
A large portion of our work has been about process, holding weekly workshops, often working with a number of actors on a range of ideas including absurdism and alternatives to naturalism. These often begin with short scripts written by the Artistic Director and founder, Henry C. Krempels.
The newest members of the group met on other projects, including a personal testimony piece Undercover (The Arcola), which explored mental health, and Thought to Flesh (The Network) an account of a young woman with Motor Neuron Disease.
