Berislav Juraić was named the director of the 400-seat capacity Secombe Theatre and the 100-seat Charles Cryer Studio Theatre in London after a four-month process. Juraić and theatre performer Micha Colombo will take over the running of the theatre for a period of 10 years from 1 April 2015.
“Our intention is to add to the present local programme with a quality professional programme that will include classical and contemporary texts, dance and a new circus. Today we start with preparations for our first season which will start in October 2015. I hope to have the opportunity to cooperate also with Croatian artists, “said the new director.
Juraić has resided in London since 2009, where he produced the world premiere of Tom Lyall’s “Defrag” as well as the English language premiere of Elfriede Jelinek’s “Sports Play” at Chelsea Theater and Soho Theater.
