'Another Fine Mess: Theatre and Partnership in the 20th Century`' by Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre

Rufus Norris is Director of the National Theatre, the country’s most prominent publicly funded theatre company. His productions of Cabaret, Festen, Tintin and The Country Girl have all played in the West End and toured nationally, and he directed Les Liaisons Dangereuses on Broadway.

His opera work includes Dr Dee with Damon Albarn, and his debut feature film Broken was premiered at Cannes in 2012; with his second film London Road released in June 2015.

In 2016, Rufus collaborated with Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller on we’re here because we’re here – a modern memorial to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. This UK-wide event involved over 1,400 volunteers, who took to the street dressed as First World War soldiers to remember the fallen.
