About Imagineer

Imagineer makes live events, in particular theatre and outdoor performance, education programmes, special commissions and touring work. Our projects bring together creative thinkers and innovators from the arts sector with engineers, architects, educationalists, special effects artists and designers.

Our Vision is to create extraordinary outdoor and site-specific work at the intersection of art, engineering and educational and social change, transforming lives and living in the collective memory forever. To discover ‘Imagineers’ of the future and create the conditions and environment for them to flourish.

Our home is the newly-transformed Daimler Powerhouse in Coventry, a unique creative hub that will open to the public in August 2021 as part of the City of Culture 2021 celebrations.

Bridge

Bridge: A new outdoor experience, produced by Imagineer.

A bridge appears in the centre of town. It is host to pop-up events and happenings until it becomes the setting for an extraordinary open air performance.

Gravity-defying circus acrobatics, dance, comedy, theatre and live music, inspired by local people’s stories, create a thrilling and moving montage of the courage, compassion and humour needed to bridge a divide.

Meanwhile, people in each host town and beyond come together to create their own real or imagined bridges, celebrating stories of bridge-building, bridge-burning and making a difference.

Bridge is a project for our time that brings people together in unexpected and joyful ways.

Bridge will be visiting Dagenham, Stockport and Liverpool during summer 2021. Visit www.imagine-bridge.co.uk for full details.
