Sounds Like Thunder was founded in late 2017 by Rosalind Brody and Eloise Heath. Together our ambition was to found a company that privileges the voices of the many, not the few, and to snap at the heels of the established theatrical discourse. 

 

We challenge audience expectations, turn stereotypes on their heads, and interrogate the cultures, spaces, and systems in which we operate. 

 

We also make things beautiful, tell stories and, perhaps most importantly of all, to play. We believe playfulness is the cornerstone of theatre-making — and that doesn’t mean whimsy or childishness. Imagination, empathy, innovation and flexibility all come into it, even when the subject matter is serious.
