DAVE BLAKE…
… has spent the majority of the last twenty-five years working in various roles on the
production side of theatre and performance. These range from stints as Production
Manager for the Perrier Comedy Awards and Theatre de Complicite, to re-creating

He is a frequent collaborator with Brighton-based touring company 'The Future is

From A Small Island and Down Under.
He has also lit shows for numerous touring companies, festivals and venues over the
years including Michael Sabbaton’s The Call of Cthulhu and The Temple. Most
recently he lit Garage Band at the Mercury Theatre Studio, Colchester.
