Hello there!
We are Hubbub
Theatre Company

We are an integrated ensemble of learning disabled
and non disabled performers who create engaging,
accessible physical theatre using movement and
original music to tell Human stories.

Kindness as a
Revolution

At Hubbub we believe that Kindness is an act
of revolution. In a time where people seem divided
and often put in a box, we believe that connection,
communication and acts of generosity and kindness
can make a difference on a personal, community
and global level. Our work is inspired by this.

The Drum

Hubbub’s latest project ‘The Drum’ is being developed
with Helen Baggett from Gecko Theatre and a fantastic
ensemble of performers and musicians. Exploring themes
of well-being on a personal, community and global
level, The Drum also has workshops that reach into
the community and bring people together.

Productions

We are currently in Creative Development of a new touring piece of theatre called The Drum. Based on a Hindu story, the piece tackles themes of loneliness, poverty and struggle… how we can build stronger communities and improve wellbeing through acts of Kindness and sharing. The Drum is a physical show with few words and live music composed by Ines Sampaio Figueridos. Working with Helen Baggett from the internationally acclaimed Gecko Theatre, and Chris Yarnell (The Outbound Project) and Laura Ryder (The B team) the Hubbub ensemble explore the story and messages through a range of movement and non-verbal story-telling devices. The work will be shared in May at Deda and will be available for tour in Spring 2021. Get in contact for more information.

“Hubbub has brought me out of my shell. I love helping, especially with the workshops in schools. It has taught me a lot – to be more confident and more focused. My communication is a lot better than it was before.
I am proud of myself”
