DIRECTOR CONOR BAUM
Having trained at Rose Bruford College and Columbia College Chicago (where he was awarded Outstanding Achievement in Directing) Conor Baum was offered a directing observership with California-based repertory company Shakespeare Napa Valley in collaboration with the University of Kingston and SITI Theatre Company New York. Conor then went on to work alongside The Wrestling School under Howard Barker and was a participant in two research projects alongside the Royal Shakespeare Company. Conor is a resident director of Brighton-based theatre company Brief Hiatus and was previously the artistic director of Squall + Frenzy, his work receiving a nomination for Best Play at Brighton Fringe 2014. His recent credits include two five-star sellout productions – Dracula at Preston Manor (“Conor Baum is not only a director-he is an orchestrator, a producer and a designer — and this is fully on display in his breathtaking concept” – Remote Goat) and Sweeney Todd at 88 London Road (“…the whole production showed the minimalism and creativity which characterises Baum’s work.” – FringeReview). Conor is thrilled and honoured to be collaborating with Hungry Wolf and is looking forward to the year ahead.
