About the Director:
Keenan Tyler Oliphant is a theatre-maker and Director from Cape Town, South Africa. Keenan's work is in the lineage of the communal theatre-making and storytelling traditions of South Africa. As a theatre-maker, he recalls his traditional Southern African storytelling lineage by simultaneously exchanging with histories and futures to create spaces of healing, investigation, mourning, and celebration through performance. Keenan endeavors to create work that is powerful in its relation to contemporary experience, and that challenges social and political conventions while engaging with performance as a ritual expression of the spiritual and the erotic. Keenan is a founding member of Mixing Bowl Productions, an underground music theatre company which focuses on the promotion of alternate and contemporary music theatre works. Keenan was a part of the New Ohio Producers Club 2020, a member of the Clubbed Thumb Directing Fellowship 2020/21 and a Drama League 2021 Fellow. He has also served as second assistant director to Rachel Chavkin (Moby Dick A.R.T Cambridge 2019), Raja Feather Kelly (We're Gonna Die Second Stage Theater New York 2020) and is Associate Director for the Bengson's work in progress OHIO (St Ann's Warehouse Workshop April 2021).
