As one of the Directors of Phrased and Confused I’ve produced a national tour, three festival stages (at Summer Sundae in Leicester and as part of Interrogate festival in Dartington). Through Phrased and Confused we have commissioned a whole range new work which crosses between spoken word, music and theatre. P&C commissionees have included:-
Kate Tempest and Sound of Rum, Mark Grist and MC Mixy (Dead Poets), Laura Dockrill, Aoife Mannix and Janie Armour, Jean Binta Breeze, Hannah Silva and Alexis Kirke, The Pencil String Horn Project (feat Joshua Idehen) , Shane Solanki, Yusra Warsama, Ben Mellor, Sifundo and Jamal Msebele, Emma Bennett, Julian Fox and Jason Singh.
Here is a video telling the story of the first five years of Phrased and Confused:-
Heres the video from the festival in 2007
Heres the video from the P&C tour in 2009, where I first worked with Murray Lachlan Young – a relationship which would develop into Windswept Productions
