Idle Motion create highly visual theatre that places human stories at the heart of our work. Integrating creative and playful stagecraft with innovative video projection and beautiful physicality, our productions are humorous, evocative and sensitive pieces of theatre which leave a lasting impression on their audiences.

From small beginnings, having met at school, we have grown rapidly as a company over the last six years, producing five shows as an ensemble that have toured extensively both nationally and internationally to critical acclaim.

Our collaborative relationship is at the centre of all that we do and we are proud to be an Associate Company at the New Diorama Theatre and the Oxford Playhouse. Idle Motion are a young company with big ideas and a huge passion for creating exciting, beautiful new work.
