Today Gavin talks to theatre and opera director, activist and Lazarus Associate, Lysanne van Overbeek! After training in the Netherlands, Lysanne moved to London to study Musical Theatre at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Whilst at Trinity Laban, she developed a specific interest in classical and physical theatre. She founded Over the Pond Productions in 2018, telling stories from and about Europe in an effort to bring people together. Lysanne first worked with Lazarus in 2016 as an actor in our production of Euripides The Bacchae at The Blue Elephant Theatre. She then went on to assistant direct our production of Marlowe’s Edward II and our co-production with Bath Spa University of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure both at the Greenwich Theatre in 2018.
