Roger Hartley

Roger Hartley started professional life in art and theatre, travelled through film making, photography, band management, radio and finally back to art and theatre.  In 1997 Roger began to work with Simon Collins to create a show based on Don Quixote with life size fire breathing robot horses and radio controlled wheelie bins, whilst doing this in his spare time he invented and launched Lost Vagueness a pop up working casino and cabaret with strict dress code that would appear in places not used to dress code it inaugurated at Glastonbury Festival where it had it's own life and death.

This early work transforming expected environments at festivals has evolved and been copied to become the norm and most visited attraction of many contemporary festival spaces. He now focusses on the non festival environment and works in the everyday real world looking for ways to make people question their surroundings it is with the firm beliefs that the best solutions start with a great question and that if an idea is at first not absurd then there is no hope for it. He formed Bureau Of Silly Ideas in 2002. www.bureauofsillyideas.com

He still works as the lead creative force of the Bureau of Silly ideas and is also amazing at losing keys but only in the process of thinking upsome new fun theatrical intervention  – so it all pans out in the long run.  Roger is currently devising a large scale happening to be seen in and around the UK in 2016 2018.

Specialties: Public realm, silly ideas, improving live, theatre, branding , festivals, pie throwing, robots, fire, fireworks, road works, public speaking, toast.
