The Ding Foundation is a visual theatre company that uses objects, physical performance, original music and puppetry. We play with these elements to tell strange stories, about imaginary characters, creatures and places. We make devised theatre, with design- inspired by textures & found objects, and original sound design. We have made three touring productions all captivating audiences by generating atmospheres that allow the audience to engage with a largely wordless visual narrative, like a 4d collage.
We have toured extensively round the UK & to Holland and Poland.
The Ding Foundation was founded in 2001 by Amelia Pimlott & Simon Plumridge through a shared interest in pupptery and object theatre. They made ‘Being a Bird” with musician Hannah Marshall and The Ding Foundation was fully formed. The have toured extensively around the UK and in europe performing their shows. Audiences have been enthralled to their kind of theatre, often dark, telling starnge stories about characters from their imagination, and using all the possibilities of visual theatre to serve the story and feed the imagination of the audience.
