JHM was set up in 1995 by opera director
and writer Wilfred Judd, founder of The Royal Opera House
Garden Venture, and myself.
It’s an umbrella under which theatre,
music and multimedia work arising out of our shared artistic
values is conceived and made.
A JHM project involves work by one or other,
or both, of us working in partnership.
Projects range from a script or an event
to full-scale theatre, music, and interactive multimedia productions
and co-productions. We’ve also designed and built two
The JHM concept was inspired by the work
of the Motley design team which revolutionised design and
artistic relationships in British theatre in the 1930s, and
whose members continued to apply its collaborative philosophy
to their individual work in London and Paris, on Broadway
and in Hollywood after the Second World War.
Since its foundation JHM has set up professional,
creative partnerships nationally and internationally and JHM
works have been seen on stage in the UK, US and Australia.
In 2009 we’ll be working on a new piece involving poetry
and Irish traditional music.
