physical political fooling
Josie, Jack and Cordelia began working together whilst training at Goldsmiths College, University of London between 2012 and 2015. Silent Faces Theatre was founded in 2015 with the aim of making brave, ridiculous, unique and challenging devised theatre. We like to call it physical political fooling.
Silent Faces is an integrated company of disabled and non-disabled artists. We are fascinated by and seek to explore this unique collaboration in our work. For Follow Suit we worked with Stopgap and Disability Arts Online as winners of the inaugural Integrated Fringe (iF) award for Brighton Fringe.
In our work we employ our unique style of high-concept, metaphorical, playful theatre to push the boundaries of clown and physical theatre in a contemporary political context.
Josie is a director, movement director and performer. Her recent credits include, Every You Every Me by Barney Norris in association with the Oxford Playhouse and Reading Rep and Party Skills For the End of the World (Shoreditch Town Hall).
Jack is a performer and theatre-maker and an advocate for recognising gender diversity, invisible disabilities and neurodiversity within the arts. They perform as part of The Rosemary Branch’s resident ensemble Degenerate Fox in The Dirty Thirty, a fortnightly outing of thirty original plays performed in one hour.
Cordelia is a director, actor and clown.
She is passionate about clowning as an empowering form for women and minority groups. Cordelia has trained under clown teachers including John Wright, Deanna Fleyscher and Nola Rae. She has also toured internationally with political theatre company
