Help us continue our research


Did you come along to see Dissonance? If so, we would be very grateful if you could complete this quick survey for us!

Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England have funded Strangeface to work with Dr Nathan Heflick of University of Lincoln to look at Cognitive Dissonance using puppetry.

There is a lot of separate research about psychology and theatre however not much work exists on the relationship between the two fields of study.

We have always been interested in theatre as event – you can help us develop a greater understanding of psychological processes through theatre as a medium by completing this quick survey.

Thank you very much for your time and we hope you enjoyed Dissonance!


New Year New Work



2016 has begun with 3 projects in full swing. We are delighted to announce that our new work Dissonance, supported by the Wellcome Trust, has been given a spot at the Sprint Festival at Camden People’s Theatre on 18th March. The project can also be seen at The Gulbenkian Theatre on 14th March, Kent Science Park on 16th March and Riverhouse Arts Centre on 19th March. It’s a research and development project. That means we’d love to hear your thoughts and we hope to see you at one of those venues.

We are also taking our table top performances to 2 separate fields – literally in one case. We have been included in the Applause Outdoors menu for work that goes to festivals, fetes and fiestas! We are also developing the project for community groups to act as a catalyst. With funding from Ideas Test we have been able to start to work with families in hospices and wellbeing centres and you will see more about this project roll out in the Spring season.

Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to keep updated on the progress of all this work and other companies that inspire and support us.
