GOLKK creates new worlds in which physical bodies bring us to the heart of human relationships. We draw audiences into the present, offering you an experience which is not only live but ALIVE. With playful curiosity, we blend risky improvisation with subtle ensemble encounters.
GOLKK endeavour to make physical performance which is accessible, dynamic, and vitally playful. As a multinational collective, we are passionate about the universal nature of physical theatre, and seek to bridge the gap between mainstream and fringe theatre audiences. GOLKK champion theatre which is grounded in sharing and unity. As part of our practice, we offer workshops for aspiring theatre creators, students, and various communities.
