Welcome to A Cuerpo's website


A Cuerpo is an exciting new Theatre Company based in Leicestershire specialising in theatre in Spanish for children aged six to eleven.

A Cuerpo’s first show, El viaje de Matilde (Matilde’s Journey), will be available to tour to your school or theatre venue from 2016, presenting a unique opportunity to enjoy ground breaking theatre whilst stimulating creative learning.

El viaje de Matilde is an innovative theatre performance in Spanish delivered by native speakers, which incorporates real film footage from Spain, offering first-rate language skills and a true cultural experience

It's a captivating show with powerful imagery and music allowing the audience to learn whilst having fun.
