About Us

Bounce creates original, thoughtful and adventurous theatre and creative learning experiences. 

We place equal value on making theatre and the opportunity to be creative in everyday life.  We want to make things that spark peoples creativity, curiosity and sense of community. 

Each piece of work is co-created with the participants to make creativity a realistic and sustainable part of their lives. As such some projects focus on developing art, other focus on increasing well-being, supporting language skills and developing community cohesion. 

Our programme incorporates weekly creative clubs, artistic projects and research based residencies.

Our team balances a passion for play with the commitment to innovate opportunities for learning. We work with theatre makers, visual artists, cartoonists, film makers, scent creators and bakers to consistently evolve our programme.

Our Story


A decade of bouncing 

Our Story


A decade of bouncing 

Bounce was started around a kitchen table in 2006. We believed in the fundamental good of learning through the arts. Since then, we've shaped all we do around that idea. 'What is the good to come out of this?' 

For over a decade we’ve worked at a grassroots level making work that is reflective of and relevant to the social climate of its time. We've cocreated work with young people that has allowed them to be fairies, ghosts, hormonal teenagers and ww2 veterans amongst other things. Alongside that we've also been a part of their journey as they forge friendships in youth theatres, reengage in education, deal with mental health issues or gain first time employment.

This is why we exist. Alongside making great art we care very deeply about the fundamental good of creativity.

In 10 years we have worked with over 15,000 young people across London. We've created and shared work in community centres, schools, the seaside, hospices, museums, underused theatres and school halls. We’ve partnered with schools, housing associations, older peoples services, extended schools services, hospices, museums, alternative education providers, residents associations, youth clubs, local authorities and commissioners to produce new work.
