FISKE & CROFTS
We love the wonderment experienced when the live and visceral seamlessly blend with digital environments. Our work is about finding and creating that sense of magic.
FISKE & CROFTS is collaborative partnership between artists Bridget Fiske and Andrew Crofts.
FISKE & CROFTS create interactive experiences for public spaces and stage.
To this partnership Fiske brings a history as a successful contemporary dance theatre artist in performance, facilitation and choreography with a rich portfolio of cross discipline practice.
Crofts is a successful lighting, video, interactive media and pervasive gaming designer who’s work can be seen in many acclaimed UK based theatre, dance and pervasive gaming companies that tour nationally and internationally.
