Fevered Sleep was established in 1996 by David Harradine and Sam Butler. We make new work in performance, installation, film, publication and digital art, for children and for adults.
Our work takes place in arts venues such as theatres and galleries, in unusual places both indoors and out, and in the physical and virtual spaces people encounter in their everyday lives. Whatever we make, and wherever it’s found, we seek to provide thought-provoking, surprising and intimate experiences that encourage people to see the world in new and unexpected ways.
Committed to research and fearless about experimentation, we aim, in each of our projects, to discover something fresh about the art forms in which we work. All our work grows through collaboration and conversation: with world-class artists, with expert thinkers and researchers, with scientists, with members of the public, and with our audiences.
We show our work across the UK and internationally, through touring, and through partnerships with a wide range of organisations. We are based at the Young Vic in London, where we are an associate company.
