Nonsuch has a long tradition of providing entertainment, whether for theatrical performance or for private clients. As much at home on a classical concert hall, as in more intimate heritage venues, our performances have an engaging vitality and energy that will change your assumptions about what historical dance might be like!
Our theatrical shows are devised to weave the dances with music and drama, using period texts and songs to tell historical stories in a compelling and vivid visual style. Fully staged and costumed performances can provide an unusual and distinctive entertainment whether in a theatre space or a historical setting.
We also have long experience of developing shorter performances for special events and parties, where a presentation leads into a historical night where guests also learn the dances with the company, and join in over the evening, creating an authentic ball experience that adds real distinction to a corporate event or a gala celebration. Whether you fancy a Tudor masque, complete with Queen Elizabeth 1, a restoration romp with Samuel Pepys or a ball with Jane Austen, Nonsuch can give your guests the time of their lives, from the historical time of your choosing.
We have developed bespoke events in many historic houses working with the unique qualities of the locations, and we’re also happy to perform outside (weather permitting). We can provide musicians if you require, advice on costumes for guests and a wealth of experience to call on.
