no such thing, new diorama, short form theatre, on the run, rhum and clay theatre company, theatre, physical theatre, clown, mask, smorgasboard

No Such Thing is the brainchild of On The Run’s David Ralfe and Rhum and Clay Theatre Company’s Christopher Harrisson.


It provides a home for short-form physical, visual and experimental performance.  By short-form, we mean self-contained pieces no more than 15 minutes long.


We programme and occasionally perform in No Such Thing about twice a year, in partnership with the New Diorama Theatre. 


Previous No Such Things have featured clown, dance, hand-shadow puppetry, physical theatre, short films, mad lectures, acrobatics, performances in near-total darkness and our very own ‘Greek Tragedy’, a deranged spoof of theatre’s most murderous genre.


Keep an eye out for announcements on the next No Such Thing when we’ll open applications for a brand new line-up of amazing artists.
