Producer | Current
Physical Fest is an international annual physical theatre festival in Liverpool in late May and is hosted by Tmesis Theatre company. The festival hosts 10 days of unique workshops from internationally renowned practitioners, performances, street theatre, events, debate, networking and ‘Fest Live’, an showcase for new physical work. The festival also hosts the Young Fest Weekend , a weekend of performances and workshops for young people, and runs participatory projects throughout the spring as well as Tmesis Theatre Graduate Company: a graduate physical theatre training and performance project.
My role as producer of the festival is a year-round remit. Beginning with watching lots of performance, both indoor and outdoor. Finding new and exciting product, developing creative conversations and establishing relationships with companies, venues and programmers on a national and international platform. I manage and coordinate participatory programmes which enables the festival to reach young people and adults to access physical theatre workshops and introduce them to the festival. As producer I source funding for these programmes and locate space, place and partners to develop work with.
