Spies Like Us is an ensemble physical theatre company comprised of six Young Pleasance graduates as part of the Pleasance Futures' XYP initiative. With a combined total of 34 Edinburgh and London fringe runs behind the six members, the company focuses on devised visual storytelling which puts movement at the forefront of the narrative. Their award-winning debut production Our Man in Havana ingeniously dissects the piercingly relevant themes of misinformation and corruption using only five actors and a vacuum cleaner in their trademark explosive physical style.
