CURRENT PROJECTS

 

Clint is currently in creative development with The Southern Cross Soloists for a show entitled "The Secret Lives Of Composers," as the Lead Clown MC and plays the bells and theremin.

 

He is also a key performer in "The Bubble Effect: Disco Show – for More Than Mime Theatre" - a giant projected bubble encapsulating a performer who blends circus aerials and dance in a one-hour event.

 

In development for "DENNIS" - a moving and heart-warming non verbal, full face mask theatre production. This is a story of a lonely, loveable and misunderstood character, who lives by himself in a small flat in Worcester, UK. Dennis has always wanted to fall in love, however, so far, he has never attained it. He has seen what love is supposed to be - on the television, couples holding hands in the streets, the next-door neighbours’ dogs every Sunday morning. However, Dennis himself has never had a companion ... until now! Funny and poignant, Dennis explores the human condition and is written and performed by Clint.
