Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari
Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari make wild, bold, visual performance for people who don’t really like theatre and unusual theatrical experiences for those who do. They create work both for, and with, children and adults – in traditional theatres and studios, outdoors and in found spaces. They have been commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Tate Britain, the ICA, Museum of London, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, National Theatre Studio, The Science Museum, Cambridge Junction, New Wolsey Ipswich, Torquay Wavelength Festival, Shoreditch Town Hall, Unicorn Theatre and National Theatre Wales. They met as members of pioneering cult performance collective shunt, and together ran the radical arts club and bar ‘the shunt lounge’ under London Bridge station. They received the FringeReview Outstanding Theatre Award for ‘The One Man Show’ and won the Samuel Beckett Award with ‘The Body’ at the Barbican.
Nigel and Louise are the lead artists of LIFT 2021 presentation ‘Dog Ballet’.
