Dominic Garfield

Co Artistic Director

Dominic is an actor, rapper, director, writer and wannabe samurai from London.

His work as a writer and director for HighRise Theatre has seen him work in partnership with the The Orange Tree,  Theatre Royal Stratford East, Talawa, Tara Arts, BAC, Company 3 & Camden People’s Theatre to name a few.

He is also an associate artist with interactive theatre geniuses Coney.

He directed Sandpits Avenue which won a Herald Angel award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013 and has also been named as a stand out performer, by The Guardian and the Evening standard for MUJU’s ‘Come in Sit Down’ at The Tricycle in 2015, and Treasure Island with Iris Theatre in 2016.

As an actor his work also includes TV with Miranda Hart’s ‘Maracattack’ and feature films ‘Dough’ and ‘Spooks – The Greater Good.’

As a massive bearded child himself, Dom works extensively with young people to keep sane and promote positivity. His practice uses theatre, street culture/music and a collection of stupid games to engage the disaffected.

He studied some things on the contemporary theatre course at East 15 Acting School too.

Dom loves chineese food, Hip Hop and being an idiot. He hopes to one day own a spacecraft
