Artist profile

The Gramophones

The Gramophones are an emerging theatre company based in Nottingham, who specialise in witty, interactive theatre with a twinkle in its eye. Our work has a playful clowning quality that explores our strong identity as an all-female group. We originally set up to explore the concept ‘Why aren’t women considered to be funny?’ We have an open, playful style, which allows for humour to emerge organically. Our work aims to be visual and striking, and to explore exciting ways of using text. We place the audience at the centre of our performances and regard them not only as voyeurs but also as players in the work.
