Summer 2015

Strictly Spice at Kew Gardens


Following on from the success of last years Plant Family Croquet, Angel Exit are delighted to announce that we will be working with Green Man Festivals' Einstein's Garden on a commission for this years Full of Spice Festival at the Royal Botanical Gardens Kew.

Saffron, Clove and Ginger are Strictly Spice, an international dance troupe of spice salespeople with a passion for seasoning.

Through dance, storytelling and song, the aromatic ensemble tell tales of the swashbuckling history and fascinating biochemistry of spice. Their unique choreographies such as the Chilli Cha Cha, The Turmeric Twist, the Star Anise swing and the Black Pepper Bhangra, are mouthwatering flavour fusions to dance on your tongue and your toes.

Saffron, Clove and Ginger will be working alongside Kew Scientists to discover the hidden secrets of spices and to explore how they are grown all around the world today.

Strictly Spice will run at Kew Gardens in front of the Orangery Wednesdays to Sundays from 25th July until 6th September (11am - 4pm)


Autumn 2015

The Ballad of Martha Brown


Our most recent show returns for a second tour from 20th September to 31st October. Dates will be announced very soon. It is based on the true story of the last woman to be hanged publicly in Dorset after she murdered her husband with an axe. A young Thomas Hardy was in the crowd watching. Complete with live music, striking physicality and dark gallows humor, this show toured in Spring 2014 to great acclaim. We're delighted to be bringing this show back out and taking it around the UK. We are also running workshops on devising, physical theatre and Brechtian techniques to accompany the show. Please contact Nicky  to find out more.


Christmas 2015

Otto and the Robin

For under 8s and their families.

You are invited to the Piddle under Puddle  annual Christmas party!

Everyone will be there

Well nearly everyone...Otto would like to go but he's just too shy.

Then one day a robin flies in through Otto's window and changes his life forever. 

A tale of making friends and overcoming our fears filled with festive cheer, fun songs and gorgeous puppetry. This brand new show from Dorset based Angel Exit Theatre promises to delight both young and old.

The show has been commissioned by Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts and was created with support from Marine Theatre Lyme Regis R&D by the Sea and Arts Council England.

Shows run at Lighthouse from 8th - 24th December 2015. Tickets on sale soon through Lighthouse.

A non-seasonal version of the show will be available for touring in 2016. Contact us for further information. 





Formed by graduates of the prestigious Ecole Lecoq, Angel Exit Theatre is a shifting ensemble of performers with a shared passion for new dynamic physical theatre, under the artistic direction of Tamsin Fessey and Lynne Forbes.

To date Angel Exit have devised, produced and performed six original pieces of theatre, all critically acclaimed. They have very different stories, but what the shows have in common is a strong emphasis on storytelling through physical ensemble theatre, using the European traditions of clown, chorus, melodrama and buffoonery.

“Angel Exit... is weaving stories with more than a little theatrical magic... There is so much vivid theatricality and inventiveness at work here.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The company was previously based in Dublin, but is now based in Dorset, South West England. They are associate artists of Lighthouse Poole’s Centre for the Arts, resident company of Dorchester Arts and have strong connections to Bridport Arts Centre.
