Desperate Measures Theatre

Desperate Measures Theatre Theatre Company - Chichester, West Sussex

Desperate Measures Theatre is a theatre company born from two graduates of the University Of Chichester's Performing Arts Degree - Dan Head and Dave Upcraft.

We are a company who thrive to create intimate and involving performances that amuse, provoke and enthral. We strive to maintain a sense of playfulness within our work, often a resulting by-product of the quite literal game playing that we begin with in the creation of our pieces. We then desire to offset this playfulness with intriguing text about a subject matter that fascinates, and then use our physicality and strength to create a rounded, sometimes juxtaposing, but always captivating performance. We want to create work that is symbolic of ourselves, our worries, thoughts and behaviour, acknowledging the strengths within us as a duo, but also our weaknesses.

Based in Chichester, West Sussex, Dan and Dave have been producing work since 2007, but only formed Desperate Measures in 2011, immediately beginning work on their first performance "Monopoly" which is due to premiere in Spring 2012. Alongside the writing, producing and performing of their own collective work, Dan and Dave also produce a monthly free-to-download podcast which is available via their website.
