Who we are
Vamos Theatre is the UK's leading full mask theatre company, taking its funny and fearless brand of wordless theatre across the length and breadth of the country and beyond since 2006.
Vamos tours a full scale mask theatre production throughout the UK annually, as well as performing at national and international festivals and events. We share our skills in schools, with NHS staff, in care homes, with teachers, actors, carers, social workers, the Deaf community, business leaders and more. Our full mask characters entertain at festivals and celebrations, bringing fun and cheek to events nationwide, and our Young People’s Theatre learn the skills that will take them, and full mask theatre, into the future.
Vamos Theatre’s trademark style marries full mask with strong visual design and an original soundtrack. We make accessible, humorous, human, and fearless work which is based on real life stories, and our productions are rooted strongly in social research.
We have a national network of over 100 venues that expands with each new production, including leading contemporary arts venues and festivals such as London International Mime Festival; Jacksons Lane, London; Jyväskylä Festival, Finland; Perigueux International Mime Festival, France; mac birmingham; Glastonbury Festival; Brighton Festival; and a range of regional producing theatres.
Resident theatre company at Worcester Arts Workshop, Vamos Theatre is proud to be a member of Worcestershire Arts Partnership. From 2018, we are funded by Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation.
