A festival of new work | Dundee Rep Theatre | Director | 18th - 27th April 2019
Rep Stripped was a new festival showcasing the best as-yet-unseen stories for the stage from Dundee and across the country in a stripped back, intimate environment. The concept behind the festival was to offer a playing space for local and national artists to test out their ideas, and a unique experience for an audience to be the first to see them.
As the director of the project, I programmed and developed the festival in collaboration with producer Carla Marina Almeida. I directed work across the festival, including Daniel Cameron’s CARAVAN.
I am proud to have celebrated the work of theatre makers across Dundee and Scotland, with a programme of over 30 writers, directors, solo artists and companies. The programme boasted new plays-in-the-making; work-in-progress sharings of new musicals; early developments of new devised shows; puppetry; site-specific work; physical theatre; and more including a workshop programme from National Theatre of Scotland and Playwrights’ Studio Scotland.
I was especially proud to be developing and directing Daniel Cameron’s new play CARAVAN, which had a few sharings across the festival, being redrafted between each in response to audience and creative feedback.
