Meet the Artist

I find Romanian Theater much more exiting then British Theatre

Scott Johnston is a theatre director, workshop creator and facilitator.

We met in Romania, at the Babel International Performing Arts Festival from Târgoviște, inviting him to talk a little bit about his professional life in the front of my camera.

He has worked in Romania, Hungary, Finland, Ireland, South Africa, Lithuania, Macedonia, Wales, and the USA.

His work has won many awards and much public and critical acclaim. Over his 64 year he has directed over 150 plays and created workshops for actors and theatre acdemies.

He is a specialist in the work of Augusto Boal and the Theatre of the Oppressed and was the one the first practitioners to introduce this work in Scotland, Romania and South Africa.

Scott was the first Artistic Director of the West Lothian Youth Theatre and grew the company to be the largest of its kind in Scotland at the time. He is on the board of BabelFast and is an international adviser to the Korean Theatre Assocation.

Scott has completed a Masters in Stage Directing at the University of the Arts in Târgu Mureş, he was the first British student to achieve the course and was was the first non-Eastern European Director to be awarded the University Medal for excellence in the promotion of transnational practice from the National University Academy of Theatre in Târgu Mureș.
