Artistic Directors or Creative Teams: 4th December 2023
Artistic Directors or Creative Teams?
The RSC, the Royal Exchange Manchester, Plymouth, the Queens Theatre Hornchurch, and possibly the National Theatre, are moving away from the one artistic director model to creative directors and teams of leaders. Why, and what does this mean for artistic policy and leadership of theatres?
Three graduates of Birkbeck’s MFA Theatre Directing programme discuss this: Marie McCarthy, Artistic Director of Clapham Omnibus; Liz Stevenson, Artistic Director of the Theatre by the Lake Keswick; and Alex Thorpe, Creative Director of the Queens Theatre Hornchurch.
BIRKBECK THEATRE ANNUAL ALUMNI LECTURE
4 December 2023, 18:00- 19:00 (online).
