Nomadic Theatre Co

About the Artist

Working in dynamic, breath-taking, hilarious forms of physical theatre, the Nomadic Theatre Co has been creating, performing and teaching since 2002, in Portland, and around the USA and Canada.

Teaching Philosophy

Nomadic’s residencies engage students in hands-on, fun, collaborative activities. As they practice and create together, students gain confidence and proprioception, and integrate other learning.

“You are so great with the kids. This is all so new for them. They are really having a blast!” –-1st grade teacher
