In Conversation with Tim Crouch

In all my work, whether that’s for adults or children, I try not to spoon-feed the audience. I try to encourage them to separate form from reality. It can be challenging, but they become coauthors of the experience: we will find meaning together.

– Tim Crouch

What makes live theatre different from other forms of theatrical presentation? For experimental theatre actor, writer and director Tim Crouch, a man described as “one of British drama’s great innovators” by The Independent, it is about the relationship between the performers and the audience. Tim started his career as an actor and presented his first play, My Arm, in 2003, he has created many other plays since then. His work investigates the nature of theatre performance, challenges the conventions of theatre and engages the audience as co-creators with the performer. For him, it is the ‘liveness’ of theatre that makes it unique and that enables thinking to take place collectively.

On 27 January, Tim joins us in conversation, sharing his experience and thoughts on theatre making with Sean Curran, Co-Artistic Director of Theatre du Pif and curator of the Foundation of Performance series, and offering participants a rare opportunity to gain personal insight into his methods of creation.
