Kevin Michael Reed

Director London

My directing practice is focused on developing and directing new, text-based works that seek to interrogate the status quo, while provoking empathy and sparking dialogue about present day global issues. I also seek to push beyond the boundaries of traditional theatrical form by incorporating new technologies and media, where appropriate. There is an immense opportunity with the convergence of media to improve the theatregoers experience and our ability to tell today’s stories with new forms of theatrical language. As one of the few places on earth where you have the attention of a single audience for an extended period of time, we have a unique responsibility and opportunity to bring diverse stories to the stage that not only entertain, but educate, provoke and connect deeply with the here and now.
