who are we ?
'Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari are compelling artists at the centre of an important movement that dismisses divisions between visual art, live art and theatre. Their practice is restless and probing, with a wit, intellegence and imagination that makes it sustain'Tim Crouch
'Nigel and Louise have created quite the most distinctive, unique and disturbing projects of any of the artists we've worked with at Forest Fringe. Their work, and their approach to making it, is exhilarating and relentless. Yet in addition to this unique strain of adventurousness, their work remains thoughtful and intelligent, in ways that are accessible yet challenging, immensely fun yet consistently disturbing. They are true originals'Andy Field Forest Fringe
'Nigel and Louise's work is always bold, always ready to throw itself in front of an excited crowd. Their work is original with a dark humour that is visually arresting but subtle, complex but accessible to curious audiences'Gemma Paintin Action Hero
'When I encounter Nigel and Louise, I have the invigorating feeling of being caught in a ﬁre of ideas. But it isnʼt just that they are constantly creating; they are doing it with total conviction and dedication and leave you with the impression that there is nothing they set their vision to that they canʼt make happen.'Erin Brubacher Artist and Programmer at the Arches, Glasgow
'I am privileged to experience new works by new artists on a weekly, if not daily, basis and I trust that I have developed the critical faculties to know great work when I see it. I believe that Nigel and Louise are two of the most generous and original artists working in the UK today.'Lois Keidan, Live Art Development Agency
