Who are FoolishPeople?

FoolishPeople are a group of storytellers who actively engage audiences through film, ritual theatre and books. We are one of the earliest pioneers in the realm of immersive theatre and we were founded in 1989 by John Harrigan. The stories we manifest are infamous for breaking boundaries and opening the border between performer and audience.

For over twenty eight years we've developed new methodologies to imagine, create and manifest living dreamworlds, which audiences are free to investigate, explore and inhabit. Once inside a FoolishPeople performance, you’re free to choose your own journey, with the autonomy and power to alter the flow of the narrative. This challenges our habitual ways of experiencing stories in a passive manner. It’s a life changing experience to exist within a Theatre of Manifestation, a landscape where dreams come to life.

Become a F00lishPe0ple Patron

A few weeks ago we presented our new Patreon page and we’d like to invite you to explore what we have in the making for you.

Why Patreon?

Patreon gives us the tools to connect with our audience, and make them central to what happens next. We have so many stories we want to tell. We want to experiment and create work for a world that needs new stories. Stories of hope and purpose. Stories that offer the truth. Stories that confront lies.

The first forms of storytelling: folk tales, fairy stories and myths offer a powerful framework of shared experience, which empower the bond between audience and storyteller. We believe that there’s still more that can be achieved by using the power of stories; fables are tools which can shape the future of mankind.

For the next stage of our journey, we will engage you in the creative process, to create new works that investigate what it is to be human at this moment in history.

Your patronage enables us to do that…

By supporting us on Patreon you will enable us to create new stories and projects. Your support will help us grow and expand the horizon of possibilities and create new forms of work, that excite and place you at the centre of the experience.

Are you interested in learning more?

We have some amazing news to share.

The 'Armageddon Gospels' trailer.

Refugee gods, transposed to flesh and blood, wash ashore to rouse the myths of ancient England, half-drowned in a forgotten past. They disperse through shifting realities to awaken the giant Albion and find the holy grail in a ritual to save England from the rot of darkness and hatred that’s strangling its soul.

Turn aside but for moment. Turn aside from yourself, your self-image. Abandon the house of reflections and walk awhile in the clear air of the morning. Listen to the sound of your breath, to the sound of your body, and to the sounds of the world around you. Without your opinions the world still stands. Without your preconceptions the sky remains. Turn away for but a single hour from that with which you are familiar. Grant yourself the chance to be more free than you have been. Seek nothing more than the freedom to seek with open eyes. If you succeed in the primary acts of opposition you may never return to the world of men …
