British Council seeks theater director


Within the framework of the annual Taking the Stage program, the British Council in Ukraine has announced an open competition for the Ukrainian drama theaters and emerging directors.

“Ukraine needs a new name! This competition gives the opportunity for young filmmakers to express themselves and to become known,” explains project expert, Ukrainian theater director, Dmitry Bogomazov.

The program provides training in British theaters, public workshops and (what is probably most important!) a cash award.

Directors will be able to work with texts by:

  • David Eldridge “Under the Blue Sky”
  • Selma Dimitrijevic “Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone”
  • Lee Hall “The Pitmen Painters”
  • Mark Haddon “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” adapted for stage by Simon Stephens
  • David Harrower “Blackbird”
  • Duncan Macmillan “Lungs”

“These play are entirely different. They focus on topics, which our playwrighters do not dare to speak abut. They are about how people feel in this world and how it is changing,” says Anna Veselovska, dramatist.

Participants need to submit a joint application to stage one of six contemporary UK plays selected for the program till July 31, 2016.
