We’d love to introduce our newest member of NoE and Executive Producer, DEAN WORTHINGTON, who has been working away behind the scenes for some months now.
We’re thrilled to have Dean and his expertise on board. Get to NoE him a little more below:
WHY ARE YOU SO PASSIONATE ABOUT STORYTELLING?
Storytelling allows us as people to connect and share with one another in all of life’s experiences. The sharing of stories is a part of what makes us who we are, whether it be through great theatre, to something much simpler in communicating with our fellow humans. All stories are important and allow us to learn and develop from others’ stories and apply them to our own journey and relationships.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT WITH NORTH OF EIGHT?
I love working with groups where passion and love are the driving forces behind the work. The Collective is one of the most committed and passionate groups of people that I have ever seen, there is such a dedication to the company and the industry as a whole. It is such an honour to work with such talented and passionate people, I just know that we are going to continue to flourish as we continue to produce exceptional work.
WHAT’S BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE TO DATE?
I’m not sure I could ever distill all the theatre I have seen into one favourite moment. While I was living in London I managed to see some amazing actors treading the boards in the West End, I will never forget seeing James Earl Jones, playing Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which just blew me away. But I have also loved experiencing smaller independent pieces which really push the boundaries of what we traditionally know and expect as theatre.
