Charlotte Louise McKechnie

I direct physical theatre, circus, and contemporary opera with an emphasis on illuminating narratives of marginalised voices and unperformed female writers/composers. Currently based in Glasgow, my previous work includes multidisciplinary circus collaborations and multiple world-premiere operas with the American Repertory Theatre, Opera America, the National Opera Centre and Boston Centre for the Arts. My current devising project "Viola" - a physical and aerial theatre work based on Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" - challenges our preconceptions of self-expression and isolation in a radical, darker reimagining of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, using acrobatics, dance and aerial.
