april 2022 saw me reunited in-person (tears, hugs and booster shots!) with my fellow collaborators/ARTISTS of the director’s theatre/writer’s theatre at our artistic home: the london performance studios.
valerie mccann, joseph connolly, josef mohammed, laura schuller and myself performed ‘Death at five o’clock’ written and directed and set designed by than hussein clark, with assistant direction by andy mccredie, movement, vocal direction and production images by maya yoncali, with bespoke costumes and wigs by Adrian at Academy costumes, london.
“The Director’s Theatre Writer’s Theatre is an international ensemble of actors who work under the artistic direction of Than Hussein Clark. They have devised scripted performances together for the last seven years and performed large scale productions in the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States, primarily within the confines of the contemporary art world. Their performances have taken place in museums, galleries, theatres, and various site specific locations. Their work draws on continental post-dramatic aesthetics, queer theory, Meyerhold, and Grotowski, however these modes of operation are applied to ‘classic’ narrative situations, drawn from melodrama, serials, and classic dramatic texts.”-London Performance Studios
