Hi, I'm Ian Moore, Malta-based theatre-maker, football lover, sci-fi nut, serial theatre- and movie-goer, father of two, partner of Ellen and owner of two of the maddest dog in't world, called Mavis and Ethel, (Maeve n Effie).
I created this site because my endless experiences (scroll down for more information) needed a place to live. This site allows the projects I'm working on and the ones I have done to exist in one place. It also offers people the opportunity to see who I am, what I do and contact me should they want to talk about a future collaboration.
Starting life as a child actor, in the 70's, I've worked across Europe as a theatre-maker, corporate trainer and playwright. An actor from the tender age of twelve, my first steps as a theatre director, in 1984, opened up new avenues and it was shortly after that I began to use drama and theatre methodology within the corporate environment.
My journey has been wide and varied but my life's work continues to be to assist people to reach their full potential, within the Arts or in a corporate arena, and I strive to leave a legacy that shows that I made a difference.
