About Ephemeral Ensemble

We are a migrant led international ensemble. We make work driven by a theme or question, which inspires us to find fact based stories that shine a light on current hidden social issues. We seek harmony in our work that comes from an extensive process, which oscillates between experimentation and research. Collaboration between the artistic team, the community and professionals in other fields is vital to our creative process.  

Our work is political, visually striking, highly dynamic, thought provoking, moving and satirical at heart. We don't lean on text to communicate with an audience. We combine the high physicality of the performers, original music and playful interaction with the stagecraft to create a narrative.
