Short Fuse began in 2009 as an experiment in poor theatre: the recreation of a basic space through performances which do not rely on expensive devices but on the ingenuity and talents of their performers. We are particularly interested in works which explore new approaches and performance techniques, or span performance genres. Previous evenings have included puppetry, mime, physical, and live sound-tracked performances, as well as first performances of new writing.

Located on the corner of Camden High Street and Pratt Street in Camden, London, the Camden Head has been the home of Short Fuse since its inception. The space is basic and unadorned which provides the perfect environment to let these new pieces shine on their own.
