Light the Fuse is led by Artistic Director Gemma Fairlie.. They charge everyday spaces with explosive, visual and physical elements to surprise and captivate audiences of all ages. They aim to make audiences reconsider their usual environments and see the fun in the mundane.
Full Stop is an outdoor show exploring 24 hours at a London bus stop... in 24 minutes. The show was orginally commissioned by Lyric Hammersmith, GDIF, Lattitude and Watford Palace as part of Theatre in the Square 2014. I came on board to produce the show in 2015 as a co-production between Light the Fuse and Scribbled Thought. I took it to seven festivals in summer 2015 performing to over 9300 audience members.
Full Stop was supported by Arts Council England.
