Latest Project  |  No Place Like Home

It’s 2015. Whitney Houston pumps through the speakers of one of the biggest gay clubs in the city. Through the maze of fuck boys, cheap shots and drag queens – Connor meets Rob.  

One’s a newcomer. The other has been on the scene far too long. But in here their differences don’t matter. Do they?

Fusing Spoken Word, Dance, and Original Music, No Place Like Home is a solo performance about violence and LGBT nightlife. It was originally created at Camden People’s Theatre as part of Starting Blocks.

 

It is supported by Marlborough Theatre, LGBT+ Switchboard, Galop – the LGBT+ anti-violence charity – and Arts Council England.

I use music and sound to create theatre that is atmospheric and dynamic.

 

For the last 5 years, I have been collaborating with performers, directors, and choreographers to realise their vision of what their show could sound like.  I love the process of collaborative invention and the bonds of friendship that emerge from shared artistic pursuit.

If you have a piece of theatre that needs music or sound, drop me an email at jac@jaccoopermusic.co.uk.  If it's embryonic and you're not sure what sound could do for it, even more reason to get in touch!

For a show set in the '80s, Jac avoided all the obvious cliches whilst cementing the play in its time. He is easy to work with, meets tight deadlines and delivers top quality.

Jac is a devoted and intelligent collaborator. His music is  innovative and detailed. He’s pragmatic, not precious - the first person that comes to mind when hiring a composer.
