Theatr Clwyd appoints new artistic director
Theatr Clwyd's new artistic director will be award-winning theatre maker Kate Wasserberg – someone who has a long connection with the Mold theatre.
Kate served as associate director under the late Terry Hands, as well as more recently directing productions of All My Sons, Insignificance and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. Kate was also artistic director of both new-writing company Stockroom and Cardiff’s The Other Room, and has directed major productions that have toured nationally and internationally.
She said: “I am delighted to be joining the amazing team at Theatr Clwyd, to take this remarkable organisation into a bright future. I am beyond honoured to have the opportunity to make my home there.
"In our extraordinary new building we will make a home for audiences, artists and the community that is world class in its artistic output and the way it cares for people. I have watched with joy a culture of kindness and ambition being grown at Theatr Clwyd and I want to thank the board for seeing in me a leader who can continue to build on these values."
Executive Director Liam Evans-Ford said: "The quality of Kate’s theatre making, the knowledge and appreciation she has for Welsh theatre and Welsh talent, and her deep love and appreciation of Theatr Clwyd are only some of the reasons for our excitement at her appointment.
"To work alongside her will be an honour; I am certain that with her artistic leadership we will build on the company’s success, both on and off the stage, as we prepare to open our new building.”
Wasserberg replaces former artistic director Tamara Harvey, who joins the Royal Shakespeare Company as co-artistic director later this year.
