Since 2003, Cscape have made eleven shows, done over 250 performances and played to over 25,000 people. Plus, we toured with Kneehigh on their acclaimed production of Don John, which visited 10 venues, performed 85 shows, to an approximate audience of 38,000 people. We’re proud to have introduced dance theatre to audiences of all ages, exactly what we set out to do all those years ago. It’s particularly exciting that some of the Cornish children who grew up with our work are now, in some cases, collaborators.
Cscape’s Imaginarium is the latest project we are working on, an umbrella name for creating work for very young children and their grown ups. We are developing a number of performance projects over 2021-23. Watch this space to see how things develop!

Venue: The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Date: August 22nd - September 3rd 2017
In August 2017, Cscape turned the twisting pathways at The Lost Gardens of Heligan in to an evening of story-telling, dance, music, design and installation. This journey through the gardens was an evocative, surprising and memorable experience for all the family. There was darkness, light, magic and wonder… and even a few ‘sweeties’ along the way!
10 nights of ‘sold out’ shows, performing to 3000 people.
Venue: Trebah Gardens
On a storm filled night when clouds were the colour of bad tempers, the briny sea separated Neptune from his son Neleus. But it’s been years… and today, something has washed up on the beach that is neither fish nor bird nor boat. It’s the morning of The Neptunalia Ball, but what or who has arrived?
Venue: TASTE toured across the UK to 39 venues in Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016
Tea; how do you take yours?
Milk no sugar? Milk in first? No milk at all?
Builders, Earl Grey… Herbal?
What’s behind or choices? What defines our identity? Do we really fall into social tribes and if so how far up the social ladder is our tribe? Can we climb higher?
