STORYTELLING is a fundamental part of being human and it is the magic of storytelling that drives all aspects of Kieran’s work.
At the heart of every production are the actors’ performances, and Kieran deep dives into every project to create three-dimensional characters that demand truth and nuance. Characters the audience can fall in love with. Kieran focuses on creating innately human stories, combining actor performances with lighting, sound, imagery and colour to serve the text and captivate an audience.
