ABOUT ME

Finlay Carroll

I am a theatre maker, producer and programmer specialising in musical theatre and creative work with queer/ecological themes. I have links to London and the South West.

Now, I am associate producer at Theatro Technis @ 26 Crowndale and run a company called Scatter. I also programme the Bedales Theatre in Hampshire.

I welcome conversations with artists and producers.

what I typically work on

I enjoy working across art forms with individuals who are passionate about social change. I am fascinated by approaching musical theatre in challenging, creative ways. I love gig theatre and new writing, making a mess. Bold experiments. Loud work. Music. 

My projects are probably better explained by themes which crop up often. Including: queerness, crises or moments of change, hidden histories, mental health, responsibility, letting go, ecological relationships, community, love, care.

The ability to produce is a privilege, so I feel a responsibility to ensure projects are incisive, focused, and amplifying voices.

This mindset sometimes makes me feel like I am being performative. I am learning to have an organic impact, rather than viewing the process as in some ways another product. A healthier approach to producing means letting go a defined product.

news

Working with Exeter Decolonising Network introduced me to reflective practice, slow working. Producing, in my head, is about strength of conviction, about being confident and clear through difficulty. In this blog, I am aiming to keep a critical, careful eye. I want this site to be an honest space for me to consider my work.
