Grace Gibson is a theatre-maker and director whose work curiously dissects the things in life that often seem mundane or uninteresting, aiming to provoke audiences to consider the beauty of them. Fundamentally she is passionate about creating risk-taking theatre that is unapologetic yet accessible.
She is interested in creating performances that celebrate extraordinary human behaviour, which is often viewed as ordinary, and overlooked. Her work highlights and normalises the idiosyncrasies of the central characters, making the alien a universal experience.
Most recently she has toured her solo show How to Drown a Fish to the South West and was the Associate Director of See Me Now, which was performed as a part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2017.
Her past work has been supported by Arts Council England, Pleasance Theatre, Creative Arts East, and The Marlborough Theatre. She has been commissioned by Camden People’s Theatre and The Campsite, and has worked internationally, directing in Tianjin and Shenzhen, China.
Grace is a visiting lecturer and module facilitator at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
She placed 4th in the All England Dance Finals aged 11.
