Roly Botha

Director London

he/him

I love making story- and character-driven, formally exciting work that challenges an audience's notion of how they move through their world. Music and sound has always played a large role in my process, as I work frequently as a composer/sound designer and musical director.

Devising and creating from improvisation are very exciting to me and something I have a lot off experience with, but equally I find working from a pre-existing text and finding a way to interpret it really rewarding.
