About

The Theo Adams Company is an ever growing and changing London-based collective of artists, dancers, musicians, actors and singers from across the globe, brought together by artist and director Theo Adams. They create unique large-scale theatrical productions, film, events, photography and sound work.

Their debut production was premiered at Tate Britain, London in 2008. They have since gone on to stage their work at some of the world's most prestigious theatres and art institutions as well as bridging fashion, art and theatre through major collaborations with the likes of Louis Vuitton, W Magazine and Liberty of London. 

The Theo Adams Company’s debut film project 'Safety Curtain' was premiered on Channel 4 in May 2016.

SELECTED PRESS QUOTES

“Icon” Vogue    

"London avant-garde's most celebrated new phenomena."  W Magazine

“Theo Adams lip-synched his way to the top of the art world.”  Paper Magazine

"The Theo Adams Company combine references as diverse as classical opera, reality television, high camp and Greek tragedy. Directed by the self-taught Adams, the company brings together performers from a vast array of disciplines to produce often overwhelming productions that cut through the boundaries of stage play and performance art. Heralded as an invigorating addition to London's alternative scene, Adams has provided a meeting point for leftfield performers that gives them a platform to express aspects of their creativity, perhaps otherwise not given an outlet." AnOther Magazine

"Theo Adams creates a sensory spectacle with his indefinably cathartic artwork." Dazed and Confused

"The Theo Adams Company is a collective of the most alluring lungs, limbs and entrancingly lascivious performers you couldn’t have dreamt up. Headed by Theo Adams, the group have been touring cities across the globe. This was a spectacle of impassioned revelry and dramatic despair all dressed up in a pair of ten inch heels and a lipstick red dress. From start to finish, the stage exploded in a visceral and emotive soundtrack from power divas with an opulent flood of ruby glitter and pained, mascara streaked cheeks; unashamed glutton of subverted glamour that appeals to the cathartic heart and summons the spirit. Entirely mesmerising." i-D

”A visionary explosion of performance art. Fresh on the heels of a Louis Vuitton-commissioned installment in Tokyo, the Theo Adams Company brings to London an all-encompassing emotional experience that melds power ballads, classical scores, queer cabaret and expressionist dance into a mesmerizing and unforgettable work of art."  Out Magazine

"Everyone is excited by Theo" - The Sunday Times
