"The only natural talent a creative has is the desire to create."
- said someone someonce.
Few things are truer than this. All the projects you can read about below were produced or at least co-produced by me.

09 Short Film
A mime, an innocent being born to entertain, seemingly living off thin air, a consumer only of invisible goods suddenly has access to real things. She has such terrible fun she doesn’t realise how the pile of waste around her grows and grows. Written and produced by me, directed by the delightful Donald Craigie.

A genuine exploration of "It doesn't matter, one day I'll be dead. Or does it?" will lead us to hilarious deathly shower thoughts, as well as the simple biology versus the complex poetry of death. Let's look at diverse rituals from cultures all over the world, the sustainability and transparency developments of the funeral industry, and the history that got us where we are!
Tickets for the next performances can now be bought here.
06 Short Film
Dao Hides, No Name
A brilliant short film I produced, directed by Xan Gilmour. Daryl steals an ancient book from the Royal Asiatic Society. Reading it propels her towards Transcendence - and attracts the attention of gods and demons.

Come To Daddy
‘Come To Daddy’ is a live-art mash up of family history, art history and a show about the long, long journey to the here-and-now. This fever-dream journey through the 20th century is inspired by the work of Tadeusz Kantor and other icons that have led us to where we are today. It is a reflection upon all of the moments that have delivered us to this exact point in time. From the first kisses and awkward goodbyes to the self-portraits of Van Gogh and creations of Dali to the first world war and the atom bomb, all of it will be staged and swept away again. It will all be done. It will all be remembered. Space will be made for all of it.
