boyleANDshaw have worked in partnership since 2007, producing dense workswith multiple and repeated socio-cultural, philosophical and aesthetic references and themes. Committed to exploring collaborative practice, they frequently elaborate their projects with other artists and performers.

(Romanian Cultural Institute, 2009) and The Filthy Songs Of Their Fathers (Guest Projects, 2010), The Scuttler (David Gryn curated at ICA, 2010).

Among their current projects is an exploration of I Rise In Flame, Cried The Phoenix by Tennessee Williams, which they have been developing at the National Theatre Studio.
