Kompact Theatre

Kompact Theatre formed in 2009 with the idea of producing compact contemporary musical theatre. The company focus is on using material by contemporary composers who create work for smaller casts. The result is innovative work that often challenges the barriers instilled by traditional musical theatre. We premiered our first show ‘Catch Me I’m Falling’ at the Northbrook Theatre. This production was so well received that we were asked to add more dates and in October 2009 Kompact returned for a further run. In May 2010 Kompact were lucky enough to perform at Concorde 2 in Brighton for our production of ‘To Look Beyond…‘ as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival. In 2010 the company decided to strip back their productions even further to become even more ‘KOMPACT’ and so presented an evening of alternative cabaret at the newly refurbished Brighton Ballrooms in November. With the success of this performance, we continue to perform our ‘Kompact Cabaret’ evenings at venues across Brighton and London. Kompact boasts an experienced cast and production team whose training includes East 15, ALRA, The London College of Music, Arts Ed, Royal Academy of Music, Mountview and STAC. Performance, production and directorial credits span stage and screen all across the UK, Europe and further afield in Japan, USA and Australia.

Our passion and commitment makes us who we are.

We are not trying to change the world through theatre, we are trying to spread a little Kompact love and we would love you to be a part of it.

Magician

David has been performing magic for 15 years and thoroughly enjoys what he does. He belongs to two magic societies:-

The Associated Conjurers of East Sussex & The Sussex Magic Circle

He loves meeting other magicians and sharing ideas. David puts lots of hard work into practicing magic and pays particular attention to the entertainment and routining aspects.

When he starts performing close up magic for a group who have just met him, he introduces himself and likes to get every persons name.

His magic starts fast and flashy, blending in to a slightly slower pace closing on a wow finish. He has been bitten by the magic bug as magicians say, and absolutely loves what he does!!
