The office will be closed from Monday 17/12/2016 to Tuesday 05/01/2016. We are taking an extended Christmas break after a very busy year.
If you have an urgent inquiry we are still working so just call and you will be diverted through to a mobile.
Following on from the success of Light Night 2013 I am again Production Manager for 2014 as well as playing a key role in the new emerging artists programme ‘Shine’. Just reviewed all the applications and it looks like a great programme is coming together.
Just recovering from a busy weekend supporting Le Grand Depart all over the area. We have kit out with loads of projects and pop-up arts pieces, then ran stage management, backline and PA for Le Stage Briggate and went on to run the sound system for the Scott Hall Hub in Leeds. What a brilliant atmosphere all day, hard work but worth every second.
Few of my snapshots below, also check out Lizzie Coombes Behind the scenes series – beautiful shots of the efforts that went into making it all happen.
Hazel is the new production coordinator for the REACH project. REACH is a three year partnership project between Dep Arts and ARC, Stockton Arts Centre to tour high quality contemporary theatre to 9 venues in North East England and is funded by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme. Hazel’s role is to co-ordinate technical & production support across all the touring companies and venues involved in the programme.
A quick call from Joanne Wain and I was brought in to drive one of their safety vehicles for filming scenes for the NVA Ghost Peloton. One of the most fun and adrenalin filled days, one not to be forgotten. Not the usual line of work but pitched in repairing light suits and getting bikes set-up, and driving at the rear of the convoy to warn overtaking vehicles. Amazing day in Buttertubs pass.
We were already supporting Manasmitra in their work touring Rudra and Shivoham when they asked us to take a look at the set in advance of the 2014 season. We completed a full re-build, working with designer Hannah Sibai to realise her original concept. We recycled the existing set by reusing what was good and donating the remainder to Pyramid of Arts as material for one of their artists to practice with.
We are delighted to be providing a complete tech support package for this UK tour, including projection, lighting tech, set transportation.
We have just produced a brilliant new site which will give you a great idea of what we can do.
