About Director’s Cut
Director’s Cut was founded by theatre maker Heather Ward in 2015 and is an adventurous, open, imaginative and experimental theatre company, making art, telling stories, and providing a space for artists come together to explore art, life, questions, quests, exploring and developing their craft and creativity, and being connected, inspired and supported in their artistic journey.
An idea, a desire, an instinct. Inspiration can be found everywhere, in everything and everyone. Director’s Cut tell emotive, passionate and compelling stories that connect us as humans, to our own voice and to the voices of others.
Director’s Cut run The Club, and have created artistic communities in The Director’s Club (Southwark Playhouse), The Writer’s Club (Calder Bookshop & Theatre) and The Actors’ Club (Park Theatre) and The Producer’s Club (Theatre Royal Stratford East).
Director’s Cut run The Lab, and develop and experiment with new techniques, processes and forms, exploring ways of making theatre and performing, and empowering artists to discover their creative desires that inform and shape their artistic work. These workshops are initiated by Heather Ward, collaborating with UK based and international artists to bring exciting opportunities, proposals, provocations and stimulations to the artist. More about our experimental workshops, and theatre making processes can be found on The Lab page.
In 2020 Directors Cut launched The Artists Hub an online hub for stage, screen and visual artists. Opening their virtual doors to artists all over the world, to connect, create and collaborate.
