Limb2Limb are Leah Georges and Oliver Theobald. The two met in 2008 while studying at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance and three years later went on to the Edinburgh Festival with Counteractive Theatre Company's Traumatikon. It was while working together in Edinburgh that they discovered a mutual love for storytelling physical theatre and began to work as a duo.
In 2011 Leah began work on the script for Limb2Limb's first show - Circles. After an appearance at LOST Theatre's One Act Festival Limb2Limb were invited back to the theatre for a week as part of their bursary scheme. Since then Oli and Leah have been striving to share their work and are on a constant search for new platforms to facilitate this.
Through on-going research, development and training Limb2Limb have created their own individual style of theatre. Using a unique mix of music, physicality and text the company captivate their audiences with dynamic storytelling theatre.
Limb2Limb have been lucky enough to collaborate with many industry professionals to continue developing their work and widening their creative journey.
