Christopher Davies, Artistic Director

Christopher Davies

Christopher is a director, trainer, educator and author of two books: Creating Multi-Sensory Environments.  Practical Ideas for Teaching and Learning”  and “Dramatic Starts.” He is continually seeking ways in which we can improve our methods of communication with young people.

Christopher taught in primary schools for 13 years before spending an inspiring year at The Central School of Speech and Drama.  He then joined the Leicestershire Drama Advisory Service before co-founding Bamboozle in 1994.  He is artistic director and CEO of the company.

His work is informed by three fundamental beliefs:

  • that it is his job as an artist and educator to provide all young people with the means to find their own voice,
  • that young people of all abilities and disabilities flourish when we create an enabled space free from judgement and which facilitates exploration and learning,
  • that all young people know more than we think they do and are capable of more than they yet realise.

Christopher has run courses for many organisations nationally and internationally including: The National Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe, Royal Shakespeare Company, Leicester University, Assitej [UK], Shanghai Children’s Art Theatre, New York University, Singapore Arts Council, Melbourne Arts Centre and Sydney Opera House.  As well as hundreds of special school staff groups in the UK and abroad.
