“soulful songs, macho choreography and lots of helmets”





The Wardrobe Ensemble


The Wardrobe Ensemble follow up their sell out debut show, RIOT, with 33, a new piece inspired by the Chilean miner crisis.

The Wardrobe Ensemble use soulful songs, macho choreography and lots of helmets to present the Chilean miner crisis, 2010. A tale of friendship, hope and Elvis Presley, 33 goes beyond the newsrooms, past the cameras leaving you 2000 feet underground.

33 has been devised by the company over the last year, in R&D sessions at the National Theatre Studio, Bristol Old Vic and on residency in the USA.

The Wardrobe Ensemble fictionalise forgotten stories that were once at the height of media attention, using verbatim material, physical theatre, live music and inventive stagecraft. They make theatre that explores, questions, and celebrates human life.

Originating from the Bristol Old Vic Young Company, the company formed during the Bristol Old Vic’s one year training course, Made in Bristol.

Their first show, RIOT, was devised over several months and performed at the Bristol Old Vic Studio in June 2011. It transferred to Edinburgh Fringe to critical acclaim, sell-out audiences and a nomination for The Stage Award for Acting Excellence: Best Ensemble. In 2012 the show toured nationally and in the USA, (where it was The Berkshire Fringe Festival’s highest ever grossing show).
