The Fear of Fear (in development)

Commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre, supported by Arts Council England, The Sir Barry Jackson Trust and Department of Psychology, University of Warwick.

Fear is inherent within us as a survival instinct, but in today’s world as our needs have changed are our fears justified or are they the result of manipulation to keep us oppressed by those who seek power and personal gain?


Fear of Fear will explore personal and universal fears to see if we have every reason to be constantly shit scared or if like an illusion we’re seeing what the magicians want us to. 

The Fear of Fear was be pitched at China Plate's Bite Size Festival, Saturday 7 October 2017. It underwent an R+D period in January 2018, and will open at Warwick Arts Centre in autumn 2018.
