DUENDE is a performance company dedicated to creating new, radical and provocative work based in transnational collaboration and a commitment to ongoing training and artistic development.

Established in 2010 by Artistic Director John Britton, DUENDE’s work is based in a training process called ‘Self-With-Others’, a rigorous yet gentle psychophysical approach to training individuals in ensemble.

DUENDE’s work is split into three areas:

Performer Training/The DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre
Community and Corporate Workshops

Please have a look around and contact us if you have any questions.


DUENDE was established in 2010 to create interdisciplinary physical performance rooted in ensemble and shared training.
