About the company

The Embers Collective

The Embers Collective are a storytelling, music and events group based in London. We adapt world mythology, weaving stories and songs into a live, evolving musical soundscape.

Through our shows we want to bring people together, to entertain and to keep alive the wonderful tradition of storytelling through innovation. As a collective we work with an ever growing host of musicians, actors, dancers, puppeteers, artists and storytellers. We put on regular events in venues, festivals, forests and fields as well as other intriguing locations in the U.K. and beyond.

We have been commissioned to make theatre shows for The Nest Collective, Wilderness Festival and The Baba Yaga Theatre (Bulgaria). You may have spotted us at Shambala Festival, Ranelagh Arts Festival (Dublin), Meadows in the Mountain (Bulgaria), Wilderness Festival, Cock & Bull and Re:Generation Festival Spain.
