My name is Jack Fielding (not to be confused with the less cool Jack Chamberlain). I am a performer-director-theatre-maker.
I do a lot of family and children's theatre, from studio shows to outdoor promenade experiences. I stilt walk and am a budding amateur acrobat (and I also enjoy spinning sticks about in my spare time).
I love comedy, I love making people laugh and I love people making me laugh. This drives a lot of my interests, professional and personal. I also love Star Wars, that's really important. If you're wondering what kind of super dweeb you're dealing with, I have three lightsabers (glowy stick spinning but expensive), I have three Star Wars tattoos and I'm the guy who can name all the members of the Jedi Council circa 32BBY (that's your friend and mine, The Phantom Menace).
Brick by Brick
I started Brick by Brick in 2014 with (then) fellow undergraduate Jack C – he is still a fellow, but we have now graduated. We formed the company out of a desire to make stuff. Work that we could have autonomy over and form an environment where we can scratch our creative itch, indulging in all things Jack and Jack: video games, sci-fi, dystopia to name but a few. Brick by Brick is now in a really cool place and I am so excited to be making work like this, in this city, with this group of people.
My role on Omni-Science will be twofold. I will be working with Messrs Hakim and Chamberlain on concept and script development, as well as beavering away in the shadows with Jack Chamberlain to get everything in place for when we enter our rehearsal process. Once rehearsals begin, I will then become part of the cast. I'm incredibly excited to be donning the (rather sweaty) Omni suit once more to create some hilarious, bizarre interactive theatre magic. It's gonna be ace!
Most looking forward to
Bringing our show in all its glory to the people of Hull.
Recently discovered and purchased! A car cigarette lighter bluetooth transmitter (it's as cool as it sounds). I can now listen to podcasts in the car! Mind: blown.
Most used app
