To create unforgettable early experiences of contemporary dance-theatre for all children.
Peut-Etre Theatre is an award-winning children’s dance theatre company that creates ambitious, accessible, multi-disciplinary performances. We have a collaborative, play based approach to making shows – working with diversely skilled artists and researchers across sectors. We put children at the heart of the process through working with them from research stage through to the final performances.
