Clock in at The Factory of Broken Dreams where an industry in collapse gives rise to the worker’s dreams and people stand by as the world falls apart at the seams. A whole venue takeover and twisted promenade adventure with boundary pushing puppetry, sumptuous immersive rooms and wondrous characters who sew the story together, weaving magic and light into the night. 

Performed at Norwich Puppet Theatre 2018 in collaboration with Museum of Norwich and the Norfolk Museums Service

Conjured up with Gossamer Thread Circus Night Magic is an immersive cabaret of magical delights and breathtaking feats. Inspired by turn of the century spiritualism and lifting the veil to enter the unknown. Be initiated into a secret society, entranced by an enigmatic magician, witness occult obsession and meet the impossible woman for whom death knows no bounds.  With death defying magic, euphoric aerial acts from Daisy Black and enchanting live music for a transcendental experience. 

Comissioned for Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2017 and created to be performed in the beautiful Salon Perdu Spiegeltent.

In a downtown, dingy, dive of a nightclub on the wrong side of the tracks, dreams are an escape from reality and reality is much darker than you ever imagined. Meet the club’s sleazy proprietor and his menagerie of performers who spin you into a tale of power, corruption and deceit as you conspire to party with them in prohibition bustin' speakeasy style. Social commentary meets social experiment in this underground, immersive and surreal club experience. Turning cabaret on its head and making a song and dance out of the state of the nation. 

Commissioned by Norwich Arts Centre 2016 and performed at Jacksons Lane 2017
