Join Portuguese theatre director and director of Festival d’Avignon Tiago Rodrigues at The Hub in conversation with Jackie Wylie, artistic director of National Theatre of Scotland.
Tiago Rodrigues is an actor, director, playwright, producer and currently Director of the Festival d’Avignon in France. Rodrigues's theatre is rooted in the idea of writing for and with actors. He creates work in multiple languages and often mixes real life with fiction. His latest production, As Far As Impossible, is a poignant piece of documentary theatre exploring the true stories of humanitarian workers.
Rodrigues describes the theatre as being like 'a human assembly: a place where people meet, like in a cafe, to confront their thoughts and share their time'. On the afternoon before the opening night of As Far As Impossible, share an hour with Rodrigues at The Hub and hear his thoughts on theatre making.
Rodrigues is joined by in conversation with Jackie Wylie, artistic director of National Theatre of Scotland.
