Hello! I am the Co-Artistic Director of the UK/Australian performance company Doppelgangster and my areas of expertise include devising, site-specific theatre, socially engaged performance and the themes of climate change and social justice. 

I've been lucky to have some amazing mentors. And so, with the aim of 'payng it forward', I'm offering this service for free to a talented individual or group of artists with an inspiring idea that resonates with my interests/areas of expertise. See my website for more information. 

If you are interested, please get in touch and tell me a bit about yourself and your project. Who are you? What have you got planned? How can I help? The wonders of technology  mean that this opportunity is not limited to Wales/UK. 

Mentoring supported by UK/Australian performance company Doppelgangster

I look forward to hearing from you!


[edit 26 June, 2017: since posting this blog a week or so ago I've had expressions of interest from some really amazing people with lots of brilliant ideas. Far more than I had anticipated! So it's going to take me a few days to go through all the emails and I promise to write back to everyone that got in touch. Thanks!

Hi Tom,

I missed your deadline but I'm interested in making contact. My area of interest is the engagement of audiences in defined and curated cyber-places. Experience and accessibility for live arts, culture, education and performance. I'm out of proof of concept phase which took me 2 yrs I'm no in a position to deliver fee paying events extending the capacity of venue-based events in a very different and more satisfying way for those in the digital audience. 

If you'd be interested in talking further please get in touch with me.


PS. I haven't dropped by NTW in a while I'll update my profile with some info about this aspect of my work.
