The Knotted Project create intricate & original physical theatre about human stories in a changing world. They create with a dynamic & visual language described by British Theatre Guide as “slick choreography, Frantic Assembly-like contact improvisation & ensemble work”.

TKP have created for theatre tours, festivals & have worked in partnership internationally, supported by British Council & Arts Council England. They made & toured their magical dance/theatre adventure for 3-8 yr olds 'The Chit Chat Chalk Show' to over 30 UK venues in partnership with Hawk Dance Theatre. Again in partnership, they will tour their new children’s production ‘Outside The Igloo’ to venues across the UK this Christmas 2019. 

In the last year, TKP, commissioned by The Lowry, devised a new physical theatre production ‘Time To Bloom’ that explored ‘Grief’ and the lives of Young Carers. The show premiered at The Lowry in March 2019 and was performed by a professional cast, young carers and young musicians. 

Based in Cumbria, TKP was formed in 2013 by East 15 Physical Theatre graduates Natalie Morrell & Simon McElligott. The Company are well recognised for their approach to socially engaged arts practice and have a superb reputation across the North West for delivering high quality learning and engagement with a unique flair. TKP regularly engage with & are supported by leading northern organisations such as The Brewery Arts Centre, The Dukes, Big Imaginations and The Lowry.
