About  Us

Peut-Être Theatre is an award-winning dance theatre company that creates ambitious, accessible, multi-disciplinary performances and digital projects for children.

Our vision is to create unforgettable early experiences of contemporary dance-theatre for all children. 

We have a collaborative, play based approach to making shows – working with diversely skilled artists and researchers across sectors.

We put children at the heart of the process through working with them from research stage through to the final performances.

Through our commitment to artistic excellence, our engagement activities with families, schools and communities, and our expansive touring reach to hospitals and theatres across the UK and internationally, we aim to elevate the sector and lead the industry into a new era of children’s theatre.

Led by Artistic Director Daphna Attias, Peut-Être Theatre  has been creating unforgettable early theatrical experiences for young audiences since 2008. Our shows effectively combine the visual, the physical and the musical for the enjoyment and inspiration of children and families. Our work has an idiosyncratic physical style and our mission is to make it accessible to children of all abilities and backgrounds.

Peut-Être Theatre has produced 10 full-length productions so far, alongside other projects such as R&Ds, workshop series for children and professionals, hospital creative programmes for in & outpatients, hospital residencies, and regular national and international touring.The company’s previous productions include: The Dark, Tidy Up, Shh…Bang!, Dare to Sea, ClunkThe Tin Soldier, The Little Bird Who Stayed For Winter, Draw Me A Bird, The Bug and the Butterfly & This is a That.

The podcast is free and available to download from all major podcast platforms. It is the perfect activity for families, school groups and use in hospitals. Each series was created by Peut-Être Theatre’s Artistic Director, Daphna Attias, and written in partnership by two distinctive artists, exploring themes like light, forces, rhythm, and the weather.
