Pants on Fire are a theatre company based in London who create original, dynamic, visually brilliant and widely accessible theatre. With a focus on ensemble, visual storytelling, energetic play and theatricality, Pants on Fire have devised some incredible shows. Their latest production, Ovid’s Metamorphoses will be performed this October, and is set to be a fantastic piece. I caught up with producer Daisy Hale to find out more about the company and their latest work.
Who are Pants on Fire?
PANTS ON FIRE is a London based ensemble, which celebrates visual theatricality, style and the language of theatre. Ovid’s Metamorphoses premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it won the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award. The show ran for a month Off Broadway at The Flea Theater, in January 2011, and went on to tour the UK. The show was given the Whats On Stage Editors Award, an award especially created for the show. Peter Bramley is our Artistic Director and founder of Pants on Fire and has directed all of the company’s shows to date. He is head of movement at Rose Bruford College. He was in the last final-year group to have ever trained with the late Jacques Lecoq in Paris.
