Consultant and Head of Audio, Video, Broadcast
Kit joined Theatreplan in 2023 as Consultant and Head of Audio, Visual and Broadcast. Having originally studied music and sound recording for theatre, and with a passion for opera and classical music, Kit is an experienced project leader and consultant, with wide ranging experience working with major venues, and cultural and media organisations in the UK.
Kit was Associate Production Manager for the Royal Opera House for over five years, where he organised live events and live broadcasts across all ROH stages. His role saw him lead on production planning, broadcast and streaming media, IT and digital asset management for capital projects, and working with technical and artistic teams to integrate filming into the production process.
Kit subsequently worked as Head of Production and Delivery at the prestigious Serpentine Galleries in London, where he focused on creating and later expanding a technical production department, to manage the complex exhibition, pavilion and live events programmes.
Other work as a freelance consultant has seen him build longstanding relationships with Imperial War Museum and Ballet Black, advising both on broadcast strategy and Covid-19 production adaptations. He advised the Barbican Centre on digital and live-streaming strategy and delivered a major live-streamed performance project for them. He has also worked on projects for NHK – Japan’s state broadcaster, and for the BBC.
Kit will bring his expertise to identify technology growth areas for theatre and performance, with an eye on future proofing and equipping venues with the latest and most efficient technology, able to support future programming requirements.
Kit is also passionate about environmental sustainability and aims to assist theatres in improving their infrastructure and facilities by implementing greener technical solutions and practices.
