Second Body is a new company fusing theatre, live music and science, founded by London-based writer/director Max Barton and Amsterdam-based composer/sound artist Jethro Cooke.


Second Body’s critically acclaimed debut show STYX had its world premiere in Perth in January 2019, where it won a Fringe World Award. Its UK premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 secured Second Body a Total Theatre Award nomination for emerging company and culminated in a transfer to London for runs at The Playground Theatre and Streatham Space Project.


Second Body is currently developing a new show, The End of the World.
