PRONK! is a creative partnership between Jack Monaghan and Robert Moutrey. We are an arts organisation that prioritises Science, Music and Storytelling.
Robert and Jack founded PRONK! in 2017. After successful careers in the arts they wanted to make their own work that reached beyond the conventional arts spaces and took inspiration from outside of the usual places.

“We still don’t know exactly why they do this … the simplest answer is that they are dancing for joy.”
PRONK! endeavours to create spaces and environments where artists and producers can deconstruct the universe and present it back piece by piece in works that are refreshing, challenging and original; to all kinds of audiences. We have a strong set of six core values in order to keep on top of this target. Those values are:
Look for new places to find our stories: under stones unturned, over horizons, upwards and downwards and sideways.
Writing fact-tion: to find the magic in science, and the beauty in truth.
Take risks, explore ideas and break new ground with as many different voices and opinions as possible
Create space open to all voices and ideas, and ask for help from people who know more than we do
We are what we present and we are only as good as our last presentation, we are ambitious and strive to do better
Only create what is real, meaningful and substantive towards what we believe to be universal principles of truth and reality as a collective
