About Us

Disparu Theatre, was founded in 2015 by Kesha Pullum.
We started off as an acrobatic duo performing as waiters and mimes in the markets and festivals of Cornwall.  Now we are based in Bristol with a highly talented team of acrobats, jugglers and musicians to run around with.

We believe that theatre and circus should be accessible to everyone. Performing for people who wouldn’t generally go to the theatre, catching ten minutes of someones attention as they walk home from work and impressing people with feats of strength and skill is where our passion for street theatre comes from.
