Investment in local performers and communities, alongside schools and educational institutions, allows us to create substantial and wide-reaching touring programmes for our shows. We also believe in sustainability; we work hard to ensure that our hand-crafted sets and props are made from material that is environmentally friendly and ethically sourced.

Hogarth Productions presents multi-disciplinary contemporary art
Having both trained as actors, we have been involved in theatre as performers, writers and directors for 20 years. While we’ve shared a long-held passion for contemporary art, we have not studied art history or been to university or art school. As such, our attitude towards creating and curating art works is highly distinctive as we focus on the audience and how artists can communicate with them most effectively – to inspire, move, provoke and entertain.
This often takes our work out of galleries and academic spaces and into the high street, the pub, the workplace, the home. Our conversations about art avoid words that most people don’t understand and gets people thinking about what art means to them in their everyday lives.
Our work ranges from commissions tailor made to specific locations or environments as well as touring projects. We are Artistic Directors of The Whitley Arts Festival – an annual contemporary arts festival in Reading which has been a commissioning festival since 2009.

I am an Independent Creative Producer and known for my dynamic approach to creating projects.
Passionate about what I do, I am committed to those I work with, and motivated by operating within a creative and collaborative environment. I work across artform and context as I am most interested in the possibilities of project itself rather than be limited by ‘boxes’ and ‘labels’ given to artworks.
I particularly enjoy taking performance experiences to unusual, 'non-arts' and public spaces as I believe in reducing barriers to accessing art and culture, something I know non-traditional performance spaces can enable. I have worked as Associate Producer on Inside Out Dorset festival; run Butterfly Theatre Company who are known for creating theatre in caves; and produce for independent artists/companies including Lorna Rees (Gobbledegook Theatre), Made by Katie Green and Anna Berry,
I champion inclusivity, embedding my expertise and continuous learning on Access in all my projects, which feels especially important within outdoor arts. I have been Access Lead on the 2016 and 2018 Inside Out Dorset festivals, with work in 2018 deemed as exemplary by access consultants Attitude is Everything.
Another of my guiding principles is generosity. I have co-founded the Dorset Early Career Producer Network for peer support and offer mentoring to early career artists on a ‘pay it forward’ basis.

Clown, physical theatre, dance, circus. Performing, directing, producing, teaching.
I have not gone down a traditional training path but have been developing my practice for more than 15years (I’m older than I look… I think). My core training consisted of 10 years with a youth dance-theatre company in France (rolling around in beige unitards - tick; as well being asked to create a solo inspired by a rock...). I have since pursued a career that combines movement, clown, dance, acting, and producing. I am a versatile performer, and maker with a love of devising and a growing devotion to anything outdoors. I come with a degree in Anthropology & Sociology, fluent French, and audio-description training. As well as varying amounts of rage, despair, and optimism about the human condition, depending on the day.
