“An invaluable book that we shall all be using for a long time to come”

Michael Billington

Contemporary European Theatre Directors is an ambitious and unprecedented overview of many of the key directors working in European theatre over the past fifty years. It is a vivid account of the vast range of work undertaken in European theatre during this period, situated lucidly in its artistic, cultural and political context. The resulting study is a detailed guide to the generation of directors whose careers were forged and tempered in the changing Europe of the 1980s and 1990s.

“Broad in scope, this scholarly study comprises 20 chapters on key European directors over the past 50 years”

“…provides invaluable new insights into recent developments in theatre- and performance-making across Europe, and beyond.”

Clare Finburgh, Theatre Research International, Vol. 36, Issue 3 (Sept. 2011)

“…an inspiring portrait of Europe's boldest theatre artists as they create work in active response to this tumultuous geopolitical moment in their continent's history.”
