Wayward Thread was founded in 2016 by British-East Asian choreographer Si Rawlinson. Rooted in hip hop, the company also uses contemporary dance, physical theatre, and spoken word. Si has made shows at leading venues including Sadler’s Wells and the Barbican, and most recently created a feature length show called ‘Red INK’ about censorship and the role of writer as political dissident, performed at the Southbank Centre in October.
Of previous work ‘Red INK’ - “boundary-breaking dance art chiming for change”

“Moments that will stay with me for a long time.”
Choreographer: Natalie Bell

TRAH & CHIPS provide a voice for the disenfranchised sections of society through work that is unapologetic, humorous and real. Our hope is that, by creating work which is a true reflection of society, we can challenge conventional perceptions of theatre and energise a new generation of theatre audiences.
'This company has an infectious spirit, they are totally prepared to conquer the London theatre scene. I'd run naked through Covent Garden to have a chance at being in this company'
