SUPERFAN is a collaboration between Ellie Dubois, Kim Donohoe and Pete Lannon.

We make new performances for adult and young audiences that take a playful approach to exploring the world.

We were 2021 Company-in-residence at the National Theatre of Scotland, and in 2019 we won the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust award to create Nosedive, our intergenerational contemporary circus piece.
