Phil Hayes has been creating performance work as First Cut Productions, based in Zurich for some time; working as a per­for­mance-maker, per­former, ac­tor, di­rec­tor and mu­si­cian with both a team of regular collaborators and a wider range of other artists. Created mostly through collaborative processes, the work is often entertaining or playful, built through structures or rules, with a sometimes political, at other times more reflective or personal background. Phil’s work is co-produced by a range of Swiss arts centres across the language regions and regularly goes on tour abroad.
