Caroline Horton is one of the most innovative practitioners in the UK today and an award-winning artist based in Birmingham. She spends most of her time as Caroline Horton & Co making her own theatre projects as a writer/performer. Recent projects include: You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy, Mess and Islands that continue to tour the UK and abroad.
Her work is fun, stupid and profound – often personal – sometimes political.
She is an associate artist at Birmingham Rep.
Caroline also creates/performs theatre pieces for other companies (recently Penelope Retold for Derby Theatre and Tranklements for the New Vic) and often collaborates as a performer, writer, director, deviser on other people’s work.
Caroline is an experienced mentor to emerging theatre makers and companies and a regular workshop leader. She is a writer interested in different media and has recently started writing/performing audio drama for Radio 4 (recently Paris, Nana & Me).
MA Dramatic Writing Course Leader Jennifer Tuckett said: “We are delighted to be working with Caroline Horton, China Plate and the Bush Theatre on our next New Writing Platform, our new series dedicated to exploring new ideas going on in dramatic writing in partnership with the industry”.
Caroline Horton said: ‘I’m very happy to be leading a devising workshop at Drama Centre. I’ll share a little of my practice – there’ll be game playing, improvisation,and plenty of time for questions. MA Dramatic Writing at Drama Centre’s support this summer in helping get ‘Islands’ to Edinburgh was so valuable, I’m very much looking forward to being back.’
