Hi! We’re Produced Moon. We’re a creative XR theatre lab based in Glasgow. We create playful, unsettling and magical experiences with audiences at the centre. Our work ranges from escape rooms to game theatre, participatory digital storytelling to 360 degree film and more.
Produced Moon’s founders and artistic directors are digital artist and mathematician Melanie Frances and queer immersive theatre maker Leonie Rae Gasson. We work collaboratively together, and with other creatives, scientists, technologists and programmers to experiment, explore and develop ideas and projects using mixed reality and live performance.
The foundation of our work is the time we spend in our XR lab environment, testing, experimenting, disrupting and playing with emerging technologies and new ideas around live performance. This informs our own work and our work with theatre commissioners looking to innovate and introduce audiences to new ideas at the intersection between live and digital performance. Our approach is collaborative, participatory and always inclusive. We put care at the heart of our processes. Some of our work is co-created with communities including youth groups and older people.
Our work includes sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and we’ve been commissioned by a range of organisations in Scotland including Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh and Tron Theatre, Platform, and Citizens Theatre in Glasgow. Our funders include Creative Scotland.
We have been mentored by Punchdrunk Enrichment, Gobsquad and Coney. We were Associate Artists at Platform in 2021, Accelerator Artists at Boundless Theatre in 2019 and one of the New Diorama’s Emerging Graduate Theatre Companies 2017.
Produced Moon is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
