William Vercelli – Founder
“Tree Folk Theatre focuses primarily on bringing to life stories from all over the world, through use of storytelling, puppetry, music, dance and physical theatre. The shows we produce have a very authentic and rustic feel to them as we make our own puppets and masks which are inspired by the stories we recreate.
Our aim with the company is to bring these stories to new audiences and retell them in our very unique way. In our shows, the actors work as an ensemble, playing more than one role, and our actors are also skilled puppeteers and musicians so they multi task on stage.
Tree Folk Theatre uses the essentials; few props, musical instruments, hand crafted puppets and expressive hand made masks, and as such the company has been compared to a medieval travelling troupe.
We create the atmosphere of our shows with our voices, bodies, instruments and puppets, and we truly believe in taking our audiences away with our storytelling.”
Tree Folk Theatre was founded in 2012.
