Established in 2014 by Artistic Director Finn Morrell, Temper Theatre was formed through the experimentation of combining embodied movement with fragmented imagery.
Together, they create work inspired by pressing socio-political and environmental issues. Using dance, realism, ensemble movement and complex immersive sound and lighting design, their work explores stories designed to resonate with contemporary culture and evoke a meaningful, individual response among diverse audiences.
Temper have received critical acclaim for works including Terra Incognita and TRIBE.
'With ingenuity and the minimum of resources, the production conjures a place of darkness and howling winds'

Our show ‘Tribe’ was inspired by the work of Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights. Temper Theatre is proud to support the work of Survival, helping tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures. We hope you will also join the movement today at: www.survivalinternational.org
