Neil studied Performing Arts at University of Middlesex, London, and, after graduating, set up his own theatre company. For the past twenty years, he has been based in Asia teaching, directing, consulting and performing with all levels of students.
Neil has worked with street children in Calcutta, elementary to college level in India and Japan, International Schools in China, Middle East and SE. Asia, IB students , and drama schools students in the UK.
In 2003, he set up Nose2Nose Ltd with Timothy and Ben Mann. Since then, the company has toured extensively on an annual basis all over Asia at festivals, events, schools and colleges. The latest production, 'SPACE', a one-man show by Timothy Mann, directed by Neil, has been toured from Turkey, Middle East, India and East Asia, as well as festivals in the UK. Neil continues to write short stories and articles on Asia, make short films, and organise new projects all over Asia. He lives there with his wife and dog.
Tim is an actor, writer, musician and video editor. He began working with Neil Farrelly and Nose2Nose in 2006, and has since produced numerous performances and film projects as part of the team. His one-man show 'SPACE', a multi-character comedy-tragedy hinging on lots of audience interaction, is well-travelled across Asian theatres and festivals.
He is also a designer and website developer. He built this website. Tim is also Creative Director of Palm Bridge Productions, a music promotions outfit currently producing the documentary, concert and solo album project for Albert Lee's 70th Birthday Celebration.
Jonathan is an actor, musician, fight choreographer and director and trained at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London. He started working with Neil Farrelly and Nose2Nose in 2003 as part of a 2 man show in Tokyo.
Since then he’s had a diverse career travelling around the globe from South Africa to Qatar and his work has ranged from feature films and west end shows through to directing and choreography. He has been fortunate to work with companies such as The Royal Shakespeare Company, Regent's Park Theatre and The Royal National Theatre but Nose2Nose is his favourite!
Josh is an actor, musician, puppeteer and director. Josh has been working with Nose2Nose for just over a year now and is responsible for students all over the world getting up on their feet and making a lot of noise, creatively of course!
Josh specialises in performance percussion and has worked with many different companies in a actor/musician role. Finding narrative through music and discovering how both music and speech can intertwine to create theatre is something you can expect to work on with Josh.
Darius is a theatre maker, musician, writer and contemporary artist and is one of the more recent additions to the Nose2Nose team.
He trained in Theatre Performance at Falmouth University and since graduating has set up his own Theatre Company that creates contemporary theatre and arts performances across the UK. In addition to this, Darius regularly works with youth, community and disability arts in South Wales, the South West of England and around the globe.
A producer, writer and director, Ben has been with N2N since the beginning. As workshop manager, Ben has overseen many projects all over the world, from Europe and the Middle East to India and East Asia.
Ben is a proud member of the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain where he acquired much of his early theatrical experience. Ben has recently spent some time producing theatre in New York City since graduating from the New York Film Academy.
Their dedication and passion to not only drama, but to music, dance and visual arts, can be seen in the subsequent works the student creates. If your Performing Arts department is looking for a jump-start, or if your more dedicated students would like to sharpen their artistic skills, I would highly recommend N2N for your school.
Nose2Nose is about more than drama. It's about breaking barriers, overcoming personal fears and learning to interact peacefully, looking at our differences in a positive light; and I consider it great privilege to have had the chance to participate in this extraordinary workshop.
Exposed our students to an intense, moving and funny piece of theatre that was outside their usual experience. As fun as [SPACE] was to watch, it was even more exciting to see the students in workshops with Tim, walking through the process of developing characters and action.
