David started the company in 2005, and we’ve been based in Quarry Hill, Leeds Cultural Quarter, since 2009. In those 10 years we’ve worked with hundreds of artists and companies in many different and wonderful ways.


We’ve produced and toured work across North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia, in addition to hundreds of UK performances per year. We’ve delighted, enthralled and challenged thousands of audience members of all ages – we even got a few hundred of them involved in a show or two.


Over the years we’ve sourced well over £5m worth of funding for our artists and Dep Arts Productions in order to deliver our projects. They’ve included memorable work at events such as the Liverpool Capital Of Culture in 2008, The Cultural Olympiad in 2012 and currently the Rugby World Cup 2015.


We now have a core team of six, bolstered by experienced freelance staff including associate producers, technicians, press and marketing specialists, designers and directors.


“Dep Arts have been Theatre Alibi’s Tour Producers for several years now and it’s been a pleasure working with them. They have a keen sense of the marketplace and an in-depth knowledge of the current theatre and dance scene. The strong relationships Dep Arts have forged with venues across the country have really helped us extend the range of venues we tour to, which has been very positive. We’re delighted that they are currently booking an international tour for us too.”
