Love-an immersive experience

Performed days leading up to and on Valentines day. Love-an immersive experience was a three course meal and a one on one immersive theatre show. Food was eaten,drinks were shared and the notion of love itself was explored.

Untitled 5/customs

Commissioned for the Graffiti International Theatre Festival. Untitled 5/custom explores the humanity behind the Porn industry and how because of pirating they lost all their money to tech giants and have to turn to 'customs' a bizarre world of odd and unique video requests. 'No-one cares about pirating music, they sure as hell don't care about us'

Sonic Survivors

Set on a mental health ward, Alex listens to music 24/7 to cope with his anxiety/depression. When his best friend is about to get out and the entrance of Rebecca and someone they call 'Mr Big' who is here to change the ward around, but for the better? Sonic Survivors explores what is normal? Love? and sanity? With stylised moments to music. If all else fails-it had a kick ass soundtrack.

A night out like you've never had before. All tickets gets you into the event plus secret PRE and Post show content. WE CAN MAKE A CUSTOM ONE JUST FOR YOU

Tyranny Rolls

 Online experience over 4 days, inspired by internet mysteries and ARG'S to find an interesting middle-ground between internet culture and live theatre. This particular show was inspired  'cancel culture' that’s permeating the modern political scene. In my words, they have worked incredibly hard to put together this very impressive and quite complicated package.

Find the time, dust down the laptop and headphones and… immerse yourselves!
