FAUNA (since 2017)
Fauna is a circus project I'm involved with - 5 world class acrobats and myself as the live musician. The show is one hour long and was written as a physical theatre piece for the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2017, where we won a Best Circus Weekly Award and the overall Emerging Artist Award. The show is currently taking bookings and touring extensively around the world. We are represented in Scandinavia by Follow the Rabbit and in the rest of the world by Aurora Nova.

Berlin Acoustic Guitar Night (2015 - 2019)
The Berlin Acoustic Guitar Night was exactly what it sounds like - a night of acoustic guitar in Berlin. Alongside fellow Berlin guitarist Pan Chimzee, I set up the nights in 2015 as a way of growing the guitar scene in an electronic dominated Berlin music landscape. Each month from October through April, we invited a world class acoustic guitarist, from around the globe, to perform a concert at one of Berlin's best small venues - Prachtwerk Neukölln. Supported by one of us each month, the audience was treated to some of the best guitarists in the world in an intimate, close up setting.
Cadence was a one off show created for the Adelaide Fringe in 2015, combining live music, live visual projections, and acrobatics. I was the composer, one of the live musicians, and chief producer of the piece. It lasted one hour and we performed 5 shows in total, winning the John Chattaway Innovation Award from over a thousand shows at the festival.
A View From the Street (2014)
A View From the Street was an audio visual production by myself and film maker Mike Williamson, and was based on actual events experienced while busking around the world. Shot from the viewpoint of the performer and set to live music, the show gave an insight into the everyday life of a street performer. The show was one hour in length and combined film and live music. The production won an award for best music at the Adelaide Fringe and subsequently travelled on to seasons in Melbourne, Amsterdam and Prague.
