Elliott graduated from Modern Drama at Brunel University in 2013, receiving an honorary prize for his contribution to the course.
He joined DAP-Lab in 2012 as a technical member and operator and has become ever more focused on sound and light design in the lab.
As an artist Elliott is mostly interested in the spectacle of theatre. He sees himself as a facilitator of theatre work and is looking for the opportunity to go into theatrical production or work as part of a creative team. He has also had the opportunity to work on two original short musicals.
As director on ‘Songs for a Blackbird’ Elliott collaborated with poet Ricky Howrie and Musical composer Harrison Atlee to create a small song cycle that dealt with an ever-entangled relationship that took place in the mind of two characters.
Elliott then devoted most of 2013 to developing ‘Lighten Up!’ a short musical about a man who falls in love with a standard living room lamp. The main challenge for this piece was creating a fully remote-controlled and battery-operated lamp that the actors could dance with. Elliott had full control of the music, video and technical design for the whole piece; he then wrote the script and performed alongside Tony Outterside and Sara-Louise Olsson.
