‘Wunderkammer’: wonder-rooms, cabinets of curiosity…I like to make productions that take people into a ‘world between worlds’ (my favourite review) where pieces of the everyday and the ordinary are captured and reassembled. I also produce extraordinary projects for other people….
I love the concept of a travelling show and all of these are designed for younger audiences and families. I’ve written and directed most of them myself and there is always a focus on story-telling carefully illustrated by some of the finest chamber music – we’ve used repertoire by Ravel, Beethoven, Stravinsky, John Adams, Haydn, Howells, Grainger and many more to tell our tales. Each show lasts around 50 minutes and they have been seen by over 7000 young people.
