On 2nd November three audiences were taken through the chambers of Peak cavern, led through a dystopic world of uncertainty, panic and thoughts of the future…
I design, make & source costumes. I am Director of Design at Aqueous Humour, a street theatre company, in charge of design for all the professional shows and community projects. My shopping skills often come into play as much my technical skills when it comes to obtaining the right fabrics or out of fashion/season items. I have a studio in Islington Mill, Salford, for making costumes & have built up quite a collection of costumes, accessories & wigs at Aqueous Humour which I can use for costume workshops & short projects.

New strolling show for Aqueous Humour inspired by the banking crisis.
Aqueous Humour worked with the Contact Young Actors Company to create an all-new family-friendly promenade production to be performed in the Manchester Museum. We used the spaces, exhibits, history & architecture as starting points & inspiration.
New for the festive season for 2010, we are proud to unveil our feisty fairies. Life is hard with a tree up your tutu. Designed to be performed on stilts but could be adapted to ground level for low ceiling venues or bad walking surface.
Air Hostesses with the cognitive skills of jelly and the looks of roadkill. The delightful Muffins set off to serve the non-traveling public. You don’t have to fly to be treated like an economy class passenger.
Aqueous Humour was commisioned to work with the M6 Youth Theatre to create a piece of street theatre for the Carnival of Cultures in Rochdale under the title “Where Memories Meet Dreams”.
Devised & Directed by Tom Hogan
I approached the design of the project more like a piece of tv/film than theatre for schools. Having a dedicated space at the PRU was a wonderful opportunity. I was able to spend time turning an unused classroom into a realistic flat for the whole lifespan of the project.
I worked with Bury Met’s Theatre Arts & Performance Project to create the props & costumes for their spy project for Garden of Delights directed/choreographed by Clare Fildes. They created strolling work either on there own or in small groups as well as a static movement piece which involved all of them.
