Artistic Directors: Icons of Theatre
May 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we host a fascinating discussion on the impact that artistic directors have on our conversations, opinions and, most crucially, on our culture.
Join us as Christopher Haydon – author of The Art of the Artistic Director and former artistic director of the Gate Theatre – talks openly to Dan Rebellato about the impact that directors of then and now have essentially contributed to what’s being discussed politically, socially and historically in today’s theatre. These titans of culture and influence have often set the agenda through programming that inspires meaningful engagement around the biggest issues of their time.
Christopher has compiled an insightful set of interviews to create The Art of the Artistic Director that expose the heart of what it is to occupy this unique role and he’ll be sharing what he found out with us. The ticket price includes a free glass of wine before the talk and a copy of ‘The Art of the Artistic Director: Conversations with Leading Practitioners’ by Christopher Haydon.
