ABOUT THE ARTIST
Robb Wagner is an experiential artist, whose creative breakthroughs have raised the bar on big and small screens. He spearheaded P. Diddy’s virtual duet with the late Notorious B.I.G., imagined the live direction of Disney’s Hannah Montana 3D Film, led the production of Michael Jackson’s This Is It 3D Tour, and produced the first-ever YouTube Music Awards, alongside Spike Jonze.
A specialist in erasing the line between the physical and virtual worlds, Robb’s real magic sauce is to forecast emerging technologies and call on them in the right creative moment.
This ability to innovate, design, direct, and produce his own work has helped Robb solidify long-lasting industry relationships and build teams to get these radical jobs done. As a result, Robb’s work spans fourteen years of cultural moments, like the Academy Awards, Foo Fighters Concerts, and the MTV Video Music Awards.
Throughout, Robb’s aim is to create a bridge between imagination and reality and collaborate on partnerships where the ask is simple: How can we do something that’s never been done before?

IT’S NOT ONLY POSSIBLE. IT’S ADVISABLE.
“Robb Wagner is a true theatre magician. How he imagines what is possible onstage between live action and video image is remarkable and uniquely inventive. How he creates images, his vast knowledge of video resources and animation possibility completely changed our shows at Carnival from fun & engaging to one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences. He’s imaginative, smart, super practical and best of all – a terrific collaborator. He’s out for the best production possible, and that’s what we have at because of his work.”
– Peter Flynn, Show Creator/Director
