CHRISTOPHER LANE

    DIRECTOR

    BIOGRAPHY

    I am a London based director whose work includes the 2016 West End Up Close concert series, the Blame Canada 2015 concert at the St. James Studio Theatre, the UK premiere of the new musical The Theory of Relativity by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill (nominated for Best Production of a New Musical – BroadwayWorld UK/West End) and the UK premieres of Bright Lights Big City by Paul Scott Goodman, and Andrew Lippa’s john & jen.  Other directing credits include the benefit performance of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer by Eve Ensler (London premiere), A Devilish Exercise: Conjuring Marlowe at the Rose (The Rose Theatre Trust), Timon (a site-specific adaptation of Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens), and Beckett’s Shorts (an anthology of Samuel Beckett: Play, Not I and Rough for Theatre 1).

    As part of the freelance staff directing team at the Royal Opera House,  I have worked on their recent productions of Mitridate Rè di Ponto by Graham Vick, Norma and Oedipe, by La Fura Dels Baus and I was the observer director on their production of Manon Lescaut by Jonathan Kent in 2014.  I direct for drama schools across London: most recently at Trinity Laban where I directed their post-graduate opera scenes, and at the American Musical Theatre Academy where I directed their production of David Hare's The Blue Room.  I have worked as a movement and acting coach in both educational and private settings and my own work as an actor spans thirty years and includes numerous stage, film and television credits.   I trained in Canada and at London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.  At present I am also the artistic director and co-founder of the London based theatre company Relative Motion.  www.relativemotion.co.uk

    In January of 2017 I started pursuing research and directing opportunities in Virtual Reality and 360° Film.  I am currently developing a project with a leading VR company and noted opera house that will use 360° Film to cast the audience as a character-participant in a newly commissioned opera.  Additionally, I'm developing two other projects that will combine volumetric capture and CGI VR  to create two new immersive narrative stories/experiences.  Watch this space for more details as we move from development to production!
