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: “To create new and extraordinary outdoor and site-specific work through dynamic creative collaborations, transforming spaces and creating beauty and human connections where you least expect them, lasting in the memory forever.”

Bridge

Imagine Bridge…

A new outdoor experience, created by Imagineer Productions.

A bridge appears in the centre of town. For three days, 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.

Imagined by artists, made by designers and engineers, inspired by you – Bridge is a project for our time that brings people together in unexpected and joyful ways.

Find out more about the creation of  Bridge and the 2019 debut performances in Grantham and Coventry at www.imaginebridge.co.uk

What our audiences say…

Just lovely…

Atmosphere in pool was just lovely – a time out of time. Normal rules didn’t quite apply & people could speak to strangers. Thank you!

Wonderful, unusual and imaginative…

Wonderful, unusual and imaginative events. Loved the moon in the pool and the cathedral, the man in the bucket-boat with his own cloud sail, The Emperor of Cardbordia and the magical Winters Tale. A fantastic week. Art for free. Cov’s the place. Thanks Imagineers.

Just loved it…

The Winters Tale was fantastic despite the rain – I just loved it. Huge congratulations to all involved.

Fantastic performance…

Fantastic performance! Especially on Saturday in heavy rain! Thanks to all the performers and crew who made it possible and to Imagineer!

Brilliant…

It was brilliant, thank you for all your hard work organising it, we are very lucky to have you working and creating in our city.

Weird and fabulous…

Absolutely stunning, weird and fabulous evening/week in Coventry. Well done Imagineer; we are so lucky to have you local to us. Rain didn’t matter!

Mesmerising and beautiful…

Dramatic, mesmerising and beautiful. Museum of the Moon and the Moonlight Medley at Coventry Cathedral was amazing. Congratulations Imagineer! 

Imagineerium Initiative

I have been teaching for 10 years and have never seen anything like this, the project models, presentation and performances were so imaginative and committed, the way the whole class of children as judges were so focused and attentive is testament to the quality of the project.

Imagineerium Initiative

We have received some great news, we have been awarded the Gold Arts Award accreditation from Arts Council England. We are delighted and I would like to express my sincere thanks for the support and inspiration that Imagineer offered to our school.
