Shotgun Carousel is a multi-disciplinary performance collective. Working out of London, we create bespoke performances and dazzling spectacles across the UK. From walkabout acts, hand-made puppetry or large-scale immersive performances, we let our imaginations lead as we explore magic and escapism in the modern world.
Since forming in 2013, Shotgun Carousel has performed in London and all over the UK, from Art Deco cinemas and underground bunkers to secret speakeasies and glamorous masquerades. The company is made up of dancers, designers, actors, musicians, magicians, puppeteers and makers, writers, directors and producers.
We've collaborated with some of the biggest events creators in the UK including A Curious Invitation, Petersham Playhouse, My Beautiful City, Secret Productions, Guerrilla Zoo, The Last Tuesday Society, Festival Republic and Flames & Fortune. We've taken shows to festivals such as Latitude and Wilderness Festival, and have been featured in Vogue Magazine and Huffington Post to name but a few.
I've been lucky enough to be part of Shotgun since its inception, and have had some of the best nights of my life performing with the gang. It's beautiful and silly and creative and it's a real honour to share the experience with so many mad, talented people. Below is a portfolio outlining some of the Shotgun shows/events I've been a part of.

HOAX Art Magazine Launch
I performed at the launch of the wonderful HOAX magazine, reading works by amazing poet Audre Lorde, who you can read here.
"HOAX is an ongoing, artist-led curatorial project dedicated to publishing and exhibiting creative work incorporating text, without definition, as a counter-argument to the commonplace notion that art and creative writing are mutually exclusive. Working on a submissions basis, we provide spaces in print and online to show all forms of creative work incorporating text alongside each other, without prejudice or predefined "rules" about the look, format, content or execution of the piece."
