The Celestial Sound Cloud
We are really excited to be touring the Celestial Sound Cloud this Winter. Some of you may have caught Eleanor's pitch at GDIF in June. The CSC is an interactive sound and light sculpture suspended above the audience who dance to activate notes in celestial chords! It was originally a commission for Kendal Calling and Walk The Plank in June 2016 and is now touring to Bournemouth & Vauxhall with more dates to be announced. 

Click above to watch a short promo video from our show at Kendal Calling 2016.  

Don't miss the Celestial Sound Cloud at: 

  • Arts by The Sea in Bournemouth, 14th October. 
  • Brilliant Vauxhall, London 16th – 18th November.

We have some more winter dates to be confirmed – check out the dates page on the website for all up dates.


Robyn Hood 

We are currently developing ideas for our new indoor Christmas show following on from our hugely successful co-production with TellTaleHearts of Snow White in 2015/16.  We are working with Bury Met, Barnsley Civic and The Lawrence Batley Theatre to bring the show to life in December 2018 and beyond.
The story centres around a fiesty female Robyn Hood, in trouble with the law and living on either side of the great gate of Nottingham. Expect a cast of stern Sheriffs, musical merry men and women, acrobatics, transforming set and maybe a naughty magpie. There will be a stand alone street band to catch as well!
We are going to explore stories around guilt and innocence, need, desperation, exile and walls.
This is going to be a big journey with amazing collaborators and a show that will have a life beyond the lovely Christmas run.


After a vicious hacking attack back in Spring (we now suspect slugs) we had to take down our website – finally we have our brand new shiny one for your eyes and ears!
Go check it out and tell all your friends: pif-paf.co.uk. It sings, it dances, it makes dreams come true & you can still get us on all the Social Medias.


Summer's in full swing and the gig calendar has been packed with plenty more to come, see below & check out the Dates page on the website, did we mention our new website?
The Bee Cart has enjoyed Deershed and SIRF Fringe, the trusty Flycycle & Submercycle has journeyed to First ArtSPLAT, Birdhouse, & Imagine Luton / Watford, and Action Painting has been making its mark one paint cannon at a time at Southport Festival & Leicester Mela
