After three years as Artistic Director at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, Dominic Hill has recently moved to Glasgow’s Citizen’s Theatre. Prior to the Traverse, he was Co-Artistic Director (with James Brining) at Dundee Rep Theatre, a post he held for 5 years from 2003. Before joining Dundee Rep, Dominic worked as a Freelance Director, Associate Director at Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Assistant Director at the RSC and Assistant Director at Perth Theatre.
He has received many accolades for his critically-acclaimed productions including numerous CATS Awards (Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland) for amongst others, The Dark Things (Best Production 2009/10); Peer Gynt (Best Director & Best Production 2007/08); and Scenes from an Execution (Best Director 2003/04).
Dominic instigated one of the boldest programmes of new writing for the theatre at the Traverse, which included a series of "staged readings" called "Impossible Things Before Breakfast" as part of the International Edinburgh Festival. He invited half a dozen of HiBROW's young film directors to capture the entire process of rehearsal and performance of five of these brilliant plays. They were also transmitted live to thirty cinemas in Britain as part of HiBROW's early exploratory process of delivering live shows to a broader audience.
