Art, Performance & Comedy
I produce artworks, comedy and performance art at festivals around the world. In the UK I am a regular artist at Burning Nest, London Decompression and Microburn. My projects have been seen at festivals in USA, Spain, Germany, Austria, Denmark and Sweden.
My work uses humour, comedy and immersive interactivity to create playful, subversive spaces in which to question the power and persuasion that affects us all every day, from systems of authority, economic systems, peer pressure, and the impact of the digital world.
I run occasional creativity, story-telling and ideation workshops for communities and businesses.
Guru Dave’s Trance & Mental Meditation
Guru Dave’s Trance & Mental Meditation is an interactive, experiential comedy show, satirising the commercialisation of spirituality.
The Master of Meditation, The Champion of Channeling, The Top Dog of Tantra, the Highest Charging Healer in the Spiritual Business. You are invited to attend a mind blowing meditation, a shamanic root ritual and sacred plant medicine of dubious origin.

What would happen if you had to treat people in person the way you do online? That’s the question BorderTinder sets out to answer. Online communication has changed every aspect of society and relationships, and not always for the better. BorderTinder is an interactive comic experience that revels in the very worst of digital communication. And you might just find love too.
As seen at Borderland (Denmark) 2018, 2019 and Microburn, Wales, 2018
