Performer, director and musician Phil Hayes has been creating performance work in Zurich under the name First Cut Productions since 2005. Created mostly through collaborative process, with a variety of local and international partners, Phil’s work is playful and often built through developing structures or rules. At times political, but always coming from a reflective or personal curiosity, Phil’s’ work is co-produced across the Swiss language regions and regularly tours internationally.
