Madeline Shann is a theatre maker, director, choreographer, writer and performer.


She performs in dance and theatre pieces, and she makes her own live work and film. She also collaborates on work with other artists and companies.

As a performer she has worked on a wide range of shows for some of the UK's leading companies, from RashDash's dark and ambitious large-scale outdoor piece The Darkest Corners, to Travelling Light's beautiful show for under 3's Igloo.

As a lead artist she makes performance work like Little Terrors, Sex In Real Life and Here's Looking At UKIP which is challenging but fun and accessible, finding an interplay of movement and words, laugh-out-loud entertainment and uncomfortable political questions, the personal and the universal.

She is also increasingly making work which is darker, more complex and more experimental when it comes to form, such as Edit and The Gravity.
