Since then he has worked with an Olivier Award winning circus (La Clique/La Soiree) and alongside contemporary composers – specifically Julian Philips (“Varjak Paw” ROH) Jonathan Dove (“Tobias and The Angel” Young Vic), Jocelyn Pook (“Ingerland” at ROH) and Anxiety Fanfare at Hull City of Culture 2017 and New Music Biennial and Orlando Gough a collaborator on “Black” (Imago, Glyndebourne.)
