What is Akimbo Theatre?

Akimbo is a new theatre company founded at École Internationale de Theatre Jaques Lecoq in 2021. Our work is violent, beautiful and comic with an innovative creative language that blends storytelling and physical theatre with martial arts, clown and the absurd. We are a devising company from an internationally diverse background. Each of the seven company members brings a different strength to the group, in an open collaborative process to develop new and unique performances, whether it’s 10 years directing immersive theatre, a red belt in Taekwondo or training in classical music.
