Biography

(1989 – present)

FoolishPeople create art, theatre, film, music, books and collaborative events to raise a numinous experience within the witness. They engineer immersive, open source experiences that initiate positive change.

FoolishPeople use ancient mythological techniques to enable a re-awakening of humanity’s purpose & the individual’s ‘true will’.

John Harrigan founded FoolishPeople in 1989, taking its name from one of the major arcana of the tarot, card 0: The Fool. The Fool reminds one of sacred things that one has forgotten or repressed and knows his or her own ignorance, thus is seen as the most wise. The Fool coaxes one to walk ones own path, not the path of the ‘herd’, to become a ‘Free Spirit’- a self-actualized person, free from societal constraints, who is able to let go of outmoded beliefs and ideals with the courage to pursue their own special path.

FoolishPeople have produced our work in prestigious cultural venues such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Horse Hospital, historical buildings like the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham, internationally to America and Amsterdam and worked for clients such as the BBC. Their core collective features artists from England, Czech Republic, Sweden, the Netherlands, America, and they also collaborate with many different artists worldwide who specialise in different media whilst creating new projects.

The musical elements and artefacts of FoolishPeople’s work blurs the line between sound design, musique concrete and many styles of Western music from the last hundred years.
