Patrick has created productions for Sydney Chamber Opera, Opera Australia, New Zealand Opera, Seattle Opera, Sydney Theatre Company, Belvoir St, Griffin Theatre, Melbourne Theatre Company, and all the major Australian capital city festivals. From 2009 – 2014 he was Artistic Director of Legs On The Wall, creating works that toured Australia, UK, Korea, and Brazil. These included: My Bicycle Loves You for the Sydney and Perth Festivals and The Voyage for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
In 2015 Patrick was awarded an Australia Council Theatre Fellowship to support research into large scale outdoor performance and the relationship between extreme physicality and storytelling. He was also appointed to the NSW / ACT Arts and Health Leadership Group.
As a theatre maker he is driven by a process in which a performer explores the extreme of their capacity to find a way of expressing an idea, a feeling, a sound, that takes the audience to a place of inquiry and perhaps, understanding.
