FXXX is a British director and writer based in London and working internationally. He was the winner of the 2015 Genesis Future Directors Award at the Young Vic, and directed Man: 3 Plays by Tennessee Williams which sold out the Clare theatre. After holding the 2015 Lina Bo Bardi Fellowship, appointed by the British Council and Sesc São Paulo, he is developing an architectural theatre installation, in partnership with LIFT and 10 other organisations, funded through the Jerwood Choreographic Research Project, with early support from the British Council (UK) and Stroom Den Haag (Netherlands). In 2016 he began collaborating with opera singer Lucia Lucas in Germany and the UK with support from the Artists’ International Development Fund at Arts Council England, and created a new opera as librettist and director through the ENOA Music Theatre Creation Lab at Helsinki Festival. In 2014, through his producing alter ego, oedipa, he libretto- wrote and directed a sold-out run of a new opera about depression, funded by The Wellcome Trust and ACE. In 2014 he also wrote, directed and designed a new music theatre work for the London Sinfonietta with composer Gavin Higgins, and in 2014-15 he was a director/librettist on the Jerwood Opera Writing Programme at Aldeburgh Music. FXXX has since been commissioned with composer Santa Bušs to write a new opera for Jaunie Latvijas Kamermūziķi in Saulkrasti, Latvia. He is also preparing a new work as writer/director for the CETC at Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, and is under commission to the Young Vic for a new play. FXXX is a member of Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab in New York and the Young Vic Directors Network, and has been assistant director to Associate Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House, John Fulljames, and associate director to Stephen Daldry.
