Some Testimonials:                                                                                                       “David is a fantastic collaborator and artist to have working on any creative project. I have worked alongside David on a number of occasions as a performer across the UK and Europe and he is always open minded, supportive and willing to adapt to whatever challenges are thrown his way.
I have also recently hired David as a scenic artist for a large scale site specific performance at Zion arts in Manchester. He approached the challenging job with great imagination, initiative and willingness to work within the constraints set by the cast and production team. He was an asset to the project and most of the collaborating artists learned allot from his artistic input and past experience.
In future I would jump at the chance of having David involved in any creative project that I am working on.”
Jonathan Mcgrath – Director at Ikebana Performance.

“David Watson is a multi talented artist who applies himself wholly to the task at hand. Be it as a performer, where he is inventive and quick to respond to ever changing situations or in his art design/construction which showcases an array of imagination and accomplishment. David always shows an impressive attention to detail and care in his work, often going beyond the call of duty. He’s a pleasure to work with & I wish him all the best in his future exploits.”              Ben Faulks – Independent Performing Arts Professional.
Plunge Boom Theatre Company.

“I first worked with David as a live performer who incorporated additional self-made costume design into the European Premiere of All About Evil; an immersive cinema 167676_181735815190781_4335696_npresentation at Cornerhouse, Manchester for Abandon Normal Devices Festival, starring a retinue of visiting artists from San Francisco. Later, we worked together again when I was in need of props for Director Jamie Shovlin’s Rough Cut; a feature-length hybrid documentary set in 1970s America, both as-real but also mirror-effect so that we could flip film footage to give the impression that cars were driving on the right hand side of the road. David delivered our requirements quickly, with versatility and sensitivity as to how they would be implemented. I’ll certainly be working with David again in the future.”
Bren O’Callaghan, Visual Art Programme Manager, Cornerhouse and The Library Theatre.
