Rob Jones

Director, Maker, Sound and Video Designer

  • Location: Glasgow and London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

Hello. My name is Rob and I make theatre, events, and noises. Mostly in Glasgow, and sometimes in London.

I’m also very friendly.

I devise theatre, direct texts, create interactive theatrical games and design sound and video for live performance. I am always seeking new opportunities to connect, learn and develop my practice, which is about creating bold, exuberant shows and events. I’ve worked with The National Theatre of Scotland, The Arches, and The Traverse, among others. I am interested in developing new techniques that allow companies of artists to share authorship and engage in dialogues with audiences.

I also work as a Support Worker, supporting adults with learning difficulties on a daily basis, and often creating theatre and perfomance together in community contexts, which I find hugely rewarding and well suited to my skillsets in communication and creative problem solving - not to mention a great deal of fun sometimes! 

You can see some images my past projects in my Portfolio, but you can also find out much more about my work on my website, at

If you’ve read this far, chances are I’m looking forward to talking to you. You can get in touch with me on here, or by email -, or on twitter - @robwpjones
