Theater director Terrence O’Brien will develop Popular Mechanics, a three-part project that explores ritualistic human sacrifice, particularly as it survives in the present day in a very diminished form in theater.
Terrence O’Brien is the Founding Artistic Director of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival and was that company’s artistic leader for 27 years. He has directed over 30 critically-acclaimed productions of Shakespeare plays as well as titles by other authors. He is the founder and director of the New World Shakespeare Lab, a New York City group that seeks to develop a more spontaneous way of presenting Shakespeare plays. He has taught acting and directed student work at ACT, UC Berkeley and The Juilliard School.
