Artistic Director Tim Davies is a sculptor and innovative engineer with a passion for large-scale, kinetic creations and high impact spectacles.
Since studying sculpture in Brighton University Tim now works from his studio at the heart of a creative hub in Hackney Wick, East London, which he founded in 2008.
He has designed and built a stunning array of large-scale puppets for prestigious outdoor events: from multi-award winning shows in the Spanish carnival scene, to the innovative Arachnobot which is now globally renowned, having performed to crowds of hundreds of thousands of people in four different continents.
With a keen talent for marrying strength and structure with movement and fluidity, Tim has energetically embraced an eclectic range of commissions for London’s leading theatre companies.
