Matt Feerick

Artistic Director

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available Soon

I am a director and actor based in London. Trained at Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Paris, I create ensemble led theatre, playing, improvising and constructing from ideas found in the rehearsal room. As a theatre maker, I have made work that has toured to a number of locations, placing work in the environments that suit the piece. I believe in making work that suits it's location and uses space help enrich the piece being made.

As a performer, I am as comfortable in physical, movement led work as I am with text and adaptations. I frequently work with other companies as a devisor and an actor and have experience with mask theatre, working with German based mask company Familie Flöz. I have recently begun working with film and am currently working on a number of projects as a director and actor.

I am currently the Artistic Director of Wet Picnic, an international touring theatre company who create work for the indoor and outdoor touring sectors. In the past four years I have created and performed in shows to over 100, 000 people around the world including the UK, China, France, Spain, Canada and Russia. Additionally, I work as an associate director and performer of TheatreZOU, Tit for Tat, and Pestiferous - a contemporary dance company.

As a French speaker, I have been fortunate enough to continue my work in France. Recently, I have been guest Artistic Director at two National Theatre's in France which saw me creating work, working with local universities and programming. I am also passionate about teaching and am often invited to teach at a number of institutions across the UK and France.
