Biography

Jeremy m Thomas Stage Director

I am a freelance stage director, with a Master of Fine Arts in Directing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Bachelor of Arts in Directing and Theatre Producing, and over 10 years professional directorial experience, working primarily in Copenhagen, Denmark.

As a collaborative leader, I have a strong sense for language and a passion for experimentation and new play development. My artistic work focuses on re-imagining text-based theatre through experimentation and new play development through a unique concept of creative co-creation. I also have a love for poetry and play development in the Spoken Word genre.

I am founder and Artistic Director of the English-language theatre Down the Rabbit Hole and, thereby, Local Artistic Director for House of International Theatre. I am also Co-Artistic Director of Teater Ord/Blindt, a professional project-based theatre company, which specialises in developing new work combing performance and poetry.
