Tilly (she/her) is an Independent Producer working across theatre, dance, interdisciplinary live performance and festivals. Her work playfully traverses form and genre, reimagining the ways that audiences connect with live work.
Across Tilly’s portfolio of work, you’ll find projects spanning a diverse array of subjects and performance modes, what unites them all is a desire to connect audiences and artists through the intimate act of storytelling (that a whole heap of play, sweat, and e.m.o.t.i.o.n.)
Tilly works with dancers and creators Robyn Byrne and Rachel Ni Bhraonáin across an array of multi-disciplinary works, from dance interventions in public space to raucous stage shows. She also established Lark with writer and performer Emer Heatley and under this moniker they develop new writing that plays with form and audience relationships to intimacy, along with director Julia Head. Recent collaborations also include site specific audio performances with Murmuration, a Dublin-based collective of theatre artists, making live, narrative sound installations in nontraditional spaces. Prior to this she worked as Assistant Producer at Headlong, the UK’s leading touring company.
Other companies she has worked with include Dublin Dance Festival, Landmark Productions, Headlong, TED Conferences, New York Live Arts, Live Collision, Amanda Coogan, Dublin Theatre of the Deaf, Sugarglass Theatre, Create Ireland (National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts in Ireland), and Trans Live Art Salon. In 2016 Tilly co-founded Bombinate Theatre, an award-winning collective of theatre makers creating work for young audiences in Ireland.
Both earnest and true, and at just 10 minutes it offers a profound experience — The Guardian (The Ghost Caller by Headlong)
They are entertaining and gripping, turning in unexpected directions and hitting suddenly dark, tender or heart rending notes. — The Guardian (UNPRECEDENTED by Headlong)
