Theatre Director Indhu Rubasingham is today announced as a contributor to the Core Values in Theatre Architecture session, on the closing afternoon of the International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference. Another important voice supporting the aim of ITEAC 2018 to provide a platform for the makers, creators and operators of Theatre so that their needs may be heard and better understood.
Since 2012 she has been Artistic Director of the North London Tricycle Theatre where she will have overseen a change in name and built form, as it is to be known as The Kiln when it reopens this September after an extensive two-year capital project redevelopment.
Along with other panellists, delegates will hear her thoughts on what it is about the theatre space itself that we should truly value and which spaces have inspired and shaped her thinking.
Awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List 2017, Indhu’s pedigree of shows include the recent National Theatre co-production ‘The Great Wave’, a new play by Francis Turnly and the much-anticipated adaptation of Zadie Smith’s novel White Teeth adapted by Stephen Sharkey, which will form part of the revamped theatre’s opening autumn season.
