Kieran Wardle Architects helped develop a design for a travelling theatre to be used by playwright Jenifer Toksvig as part of her Fairytale Theatre show throughout the UK. The travelling theatre was designed to be fully demountable and transportable, being quickly constructed in various locations across the UK as part of Toksvig’s street-theatre tour.

The theatre can both be constructed using the lightweight steel tube structure or be hung from nearby structures, buildings and trees. Wrapped in a bespoke perforated fabric screen, the travelling performance piece creates a singular, other worldly space for introversion whilst allowing an audience to share the experience.

KWA designed and tested the theatre concept alongside architect, Jonathan Shaw.
