Matthew Robins is an artist and musician from the West Country.
He has performed his work all over the U.K. - at the V&A, the De La Warr Pavilian, the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, the National Theatre, the Roundhouse, the Theatre Royal Bath and the Barbican, as well as many festivals in Europe, and has made new shows for Duckie, Stranger than Paradise and the House of Fairytales.
Matthew was recently commissioned by Dumbworld to create live visuals for Rain Falling Up, a modern oratorio for children, which premiered in March 2010 at the Waterfront in Belfast.
Last summer he staged Matthew Robins' Science Fiction Double Feature, at the National Theatre, writing and performing two new shows a week and projecting them live at night onto the side of the 72ft flytower. This show featured new episodes from The Death of Flyboy - a romantic shadow-opera - as well as Walter Knitty, The Eyeders and the Sarah Alexander Arts commission Cabin Doors to Manual.
Matthew’s latest project is a new song cycle, Sad Lucy: A Fish Opera, written in collaboration with the author and illustrator Viviane Schwarz.
