Flight is included in the New York Times’ ‘Unforgettable Theatre Moments of 2018’ calling it “…a triumph of visual and aural design”

2018 was a busy one and I lucky enough to work with some incredible artists and companies on some fantastic projects. Here is a full list of the year that was:
Following it’s premiere at last year’s Edinburgh International Festival and a season at the McKittrick in New York, Flight is being shown at this year’s Galway International Arts Festival, 19th – 29th July.
Thrilled that this story and the unique production is able to be shared with more audiences.
Quite simply one of the most brilliant things i’ve ever worked on. I have collaborated with Louie Ingham for over ten years and she has been fundamental to my understanding of how to think about music in theatre and story telling. Louie has devised a style of work with young companies that confronts world issues through the microcosm of day to day lives using multiple overlapping narratives and gig style theatre events.
Where Do We Stand? at Northern Stage is a pinnacle of this form of theatre. Directed by Louie collectively written by Lee Mattinson, Laurence Wilson and members from the Northern Stage Young Company it is one of the most moving, tragic, funny, challenging and vital pieces of theatre for a modern age i’ve ever seen.
Following performances at Northern Stage, Where Do We Stand? will be performed at the Festival of European Youth Theatre at Birmingham Rep. Dates TBC.
Two hours of constant underscore and sound design…
550 music cues later….

Pleased to announce that following it’s premiere at last year’s Ediniburgh International Festival, Flight is transferring to New York for an 8 week run at the McKittrick. Previews begin on January 30th. Be there or be square, New Yorkers…
Following runs at the Royal Exchange and Traverse Theatre it is really great to see some of the plays from Birth performed using my original music for policy makers at the World Health Organisation in Geneva.
A wonderful project to be part of. Learn more at www.birthdebate.com
