Concerts and events have been turned on their heads in recent years - the “norms” are no longer required and spaces and stages can be created in any conceivable way. Experimentation whilst maintaining high production values is key - workshopping ideas and never accepting that things can’t be achieved is the new way. Join Tim to discuss how the rules have changed but also how maintaining care over a show is also still required. Tim’s vast experience on major world tours and live broadcasts will give a valuable insight into modern production.
