I assisted stage designer and artist Simon Daw on Metis Arts project ‘The Competion’. I aided him with Isadora programming and the setup of his custom technology. Catch all the information here www.the-competition.co.uk
Originally developed in Amsterdam, we played in several cities across the Netherlands. Recently up for the Samuel Beckett Award at the Barbican in London. Anyone who’s seen the 90s black and white french classic ‘La Haine‘ will know the story, however, ‘Hate’ is based in London. I’m the AV designer and programmer for the show. ‘Hate’ is still a work in progress.

Pure Risk Entertainment invited me to India to make a documentary and design the sound for Pure Risk Entertainment’s project Peter Pan the Dansical. Working with children from Vishwas Helpline Charitable Trust and Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidyamandir we put together the show especially designed for an Indian audience heavily based around songs and dance we told the Story of Peter Pan. Without a spare seat in the house it attracted a lot of attention and made the News. The children learnt many crafts along the way, these shy children became so proud of themselves as they stood in front of cameras and hundreds of people telling their own story of Peter Pan the Dansical.
I learnt that insurance for taking camera equipment into India is expensive! We decided to hire equipment there and play by the Indian camera hire company rules. No insurance, you break it, you pay for it. Luckily enough all went well. When working in these places with such equipment a local guide is essential for many reasons. If others are planning to film in southern India I hired my equipment from Vineet Videos in Bangalore they have a good selection of broadcast quality gear.
