Artemis Productions was established in 2000. Based in Liverpool they are a street theatre company that specialises in vibrant stilt walking characters and interactive performance. They have built on their reputation of producing high quality stilt characters and regularly perform nationally and internationally at festivals and events including Nottingham Riverside Festival, London Mela, Liverpool International Music Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Sibiu Theatre Festival (Romania) and Eid Al Adha 2015 Festival (Doha Qatar).
The core company consists of founder member, Barry Han, a musician, designer, costume maker, and Sarah Han an actress, costume maker and workshop facilitator. Artemis thrive on being challenged to create new characters based on a brief and some of their most recent work has been produced this way. Working with Culture Liverpool, Artemis were commissioned to produce two giant flamingos inspired by the paintings of John James Audubon for the re opening of Liverpool Central Library and Light Night Liverpool. Artemis also deliver circus skills and performance workshops to schools and public groups.
Their work is often influenced by nature and movement and always has a playful, open sense of fun and mischief. The next phase of development for Artemis will see them add to their existing portfolio of characters and produce ground based walkabout shows and collaborations with other artists and companies.
