DV8 Physical Theatre is a groundbreaking theatre company producing the work of Lloyd Newson, one of the most influential theatre artists of our time. Focusing on socio-political issues, DV8 produces original and challenging dance theatre that is not afraid to push audiences out of their comfort zone.
DV8’s ambitious work is created through passion, determination, attention to detail, and painstaking effort. It takes time and support.
We rely on the generous support of individuals, trusts, businesses and funding bodies to continue producing thought-provoking work.
Every donation enables DV8 to create unforgettable work. Extensive research and development, devising and rehearsal periods are absolutely essential to the quality of our productions.
Currently, the best way to support the company is by signing up to our Media Portal. Not only will your donation help the company, but you will gain access to 20 video excerpts with supporting materials, as well as full recordings of "To Be Straight With You", "Can We Talk About This?" and "JOHN".
“Lloyd Newson is unique amongst those who make physical theatre. His work recognises no traditional boundaries. The expressive capabilities of his performers are always remarkable – as adept in the way they use their bodies as they are in the delivery of complex text. His stories are always ground breaking. And above all, his shows reach out to their audience in the most thrilling, communicative and emotionally devastating fashion. He is one of most important theatre makers at work today”.
