    Voice is the Muscle of the Soul

    Sometimes called ‘The Muscle of the Soul’, the human voice is a fundamental instrument of communication – expressing information, emotion and character.

    It is versatile and expressive;

    It sings, speaks, chants, sighs, laughs, cries, yawns, squeaks, and groans.

    It probably tells other people more about ourselves than any other single aspect of our being.

    And yet many people struggle with their voices; feel they …

Cambridge Experimental Theatre toured extensively throughout Britain and Europe, performing a mix of new work and classics, especially Shakespeare.

Jennie Ingram

Jennie Ingram

Board Director

Poisoned by TV and Toddlers, I escaped to the theatre and was blown away by an in situ: production of Macbeth.

Alive again I managed to infiltrate the company as a groupie and love everything they do. Having an unquenchable thirst for the shows my favourite role is front of house where I can welcome and enthuse with those new and old to the company.

Melting the boundaries between actor and audience provides a magical escape during a performance, whether you’re in a House or in the Woods. Scripted works always offer extra dimensions to the observer and devised pieces allow easy access to fresh and exciting art forms.

Meaningful and moving, the thrill of an in situ: show never abates...

Elspeth Owen

Elspeth Owen

Board Director

Elspeth is a potter and walking artist inspired by in situ:. She has been involved with the company - as student, performer and trustee - since before the start of this millenium.

To participate with the company is to be, in unpredictable sequence, spine-chilled, mystified, bumped into laughter and weeping salt tears. The strong sense of a community of exhilarated experimentalists keeps her engaged with everything the company does.
