Creative Director

Jon Spooner

Jon is a writer, director and the founder and Creative Director of Unlimited Theatre with whom he creates new stories and adventures for live performance, digital and broadcast. Jon specialises in collaborating with scientists to communicate leading edge developments in their fields for a family audience, particularly through the Unlimited Space Agency whose patron is the British astronaut Tim Peake.

Current partners include the European and UK Space Agencies to create an online, interactive project for children aged 7-11 telling the story of Tim’s mission to the International Space Station. Back on Earth, Jon continues to work with CBeebies to write and direct the channel’s flagship Christmas show which is even more fun than working with astronauts.  He also creates live performance for adult audiences that tours extensively in the UK and Europe, performance installations for museums and galleries.
