Night Parrot Productions is a new ensemble, which includes actors, a theatre director, a video artist, a choreographer, and a sound designer.
Together, we set out to explore dynamic new relationships between projection, live performance, theatre and architecture.
We are interested in immersive experiences, new ways of engaging audiences, and working in traditional theatre venues, as well as tailoring work specifically to unique sites. We seek to find exciting new meeting points between the human body and technology, architecture and audience, storytelling and images.
