Being a Digital Producer

My name is Maya Gabrielle

I work in London, as the Senior Digital Producer for the National Theatre, and live in Brighton.

I sit on the Digital Strategy Committee for BAFTA and LIFT.

On this blog I post about the arts, digital, the National Theatre and anything else that tickles my fancy.

I love to talk at conferences and sit on panels, so check out my biography if you are looking for a digital rent-a-mouth. All thoughts and comments are happily my own and are not the opinions of any organisation I may be affiliated with.


Let's be social...

Cool stuff

Amsterdam-based artist Cedric Laquieze (previously featured here) recently completed a fascinating new series of his exquisite taxidermy Fairies. These delicate sculptures are primarily composed of parts from many different insect species, but if you look closely you’ll notice bones, seeds and even a few scorpion parts as well.

Visit Cedric Laquieze’s blog for many additional images and to check out some of his other enchanting creations.

This is brilliant for giving images a layer of educational information for teaching things.

The Understudy



The Understudy, a relaxed and friendly new craft beer pub with riverside seating, is under construction on the north-eastern corner of the NT facing the Thames; it will welcome audiences, passers-by and visitors alike, with draught beers, wines, cocktails and nibbles.

For all the Shakespeare lovers out there. I’ve just published the Digital Exhibition on Shakespeare at the NT. It’s got Dame Judi, Anthony Hopkins, Lenny Henry, Daniel Day-Lewis and Derek Jacobi… what more could you want?
