Two Tongue Theatre is a London-based bilingual company
We make theatre that reflects our joyful attraction for what is strange, dark, funny, disturbing and silly… often pinching from the French theatrical tradition to devise innovative shows.
We like to blend different styles and practices. Our shows combine intense physical performances with multiple languages and strong visuals and sound.
At the heart of our work is also a passion for transformation. We reinvent existing stories and spin them on their heads to take them into new and unexpected directions.
We create playful shows that explore the female experience.
Whilst researching 1930's France for our first show, we stumbled on the Grand Guignol: a theatre which presented horror plays to Paris audiences until the 1960s. We thought 'How interesting... a French horror theatre...' and our second play DIY Horror Play or Le Grand Guignol Resurrected was conceived in time for Halloween 2014.
In November 2015, the ‘Sony Leaks’ revealed how top Hollywood actresses were getting paid less than their male counter-parts. This sparked our desire to make a fun feminist piece drawing from our experiences as women in the entertainment industry.Twisted and Tongue Tied was premiered at Voilà ! before going on tour in 2016.
