Who are Fusion Theatre?
Fusion Theatre Company are a London based company who believe that "theatre brings people together".
They are "dedicated to creating professional fully accessible theatre that explores different cultural ideas, traditional stories, heritage and global issues in order to educate, entertain and enhance our understanding of the world we live in."
Fusion are one part of an umbrella of companies & artists across the world known as Global Hive Laboratories. We create theatre that is entirely accessible throughout; accessibility isn't an appendage - it's woven into the piece.
Current Project - Classics Up Close
Associate Artist - what do I do?
As the Associate Artist, I have followed our Medusa project around the world, composing music to score each different piece in each city.
In London, I used my experiences in Piacenza and Chicago, having watched the project grow, to help cast our fully-imagined Off-West End productions and continued to write music and lyrics to be used either in the devising process or in the final piece.
Going forward, I'm helping the Artistic Director (Katie Merritt) with ideas for our next project and composing music to feed into that. I'm constantly working towards making theatre accessible for everyone and ensuring that accessibility is always at the forefront of our minds.
Global Hive Laboratories, in partnership with Fusion Theatre, have launched an online series of classics, performed by members of our ensemble from across the globe.
The Global Hive Mission:
"Global Hive promotes international collaboration to foster empathy, bringing relevance and dynamic conversation about the artist’s role in social justice and civilian responsibility to the entirety of the population."
I am currently composing original music for an upcoming online performance of The Grimm Tales coming up this month!
