Vacuum Theatre’s core team are award winning theatre makers Kit Redstone and Vicky Kyriakoulakou. Kit and Vicky met while doing their Masters in Performance Making at Goldsmiths and subsequently formed a company with the aim of merging theatre with more experimental forms of performance.
Their work is often typified by using direct address as the relationship with the audience is always central to their shows. A typical Vacuum Theatre show will have a disconcerting blend of comedy and tragedy, and a lot of playfulness and heart.
Their process is a combination of research, playwriting, devising and improvisation.
The company have shown and developed work at The Arcola, The Yard Theatre, The Lyric Hammersmith, The Battersea Arts Centre in London as well as having toured major cities in India. They have been company in residence at Teaterooen in Copenhagen, Denmark
