MARK MURPHY - DIRECTOR | WRITER | CREATIVE LEAD
Mark Murphy conceives & creates world class theatre, outdoor spectacle and international ceremonies. As director, writer & increasingly as designer, his leadership and vision are responsible for generating some of the most striking theatre and large scale events of the last two decades. He has a rare gift for making work that is simultaneously challenging, accessible and entertaining. He also demonstrates a unique talent to inspire and empower large casts of all abilities which has produced work that is not only recognised for its rigor but beyond that - for its heart, humanity & its humour.
As well as making his upcoming 2016 middle scale touring theatre show OUT OF THIS WORLD, he is currently engaged as artistic director for Torch Events for the 1st EUROPEAN GAMES in Baku, Azerbaijan.

This comes after his creative leadership and direction of the much heralded GLASGOW 2014 COMMONWEALTH GAMES CLOSING CEREMONY - staring a cast of 1500 Glaswegians alongside Des Clarke, Lulu, Deacon Blue, Prides, Karen Matheson, Dougie Maclean and Kylie Minogue.

2014 also saw him create the Eventia Award winning OPENING CEREMONY for the GLOBAL EDUCATION & SKILLS FORUM in Abu Dhabi as well as creative leadership for WHITE GOLD - a major site specific commission by the GLASGOW 2014 CULTURAL PROGRAMME directed by Cuerda Producciones.

Other recent highlights include The LIVERPOOL 08 & the TURKU 2011 EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE OPENING SHOWS, The PRESTON PASSION for BBC1 and AISLING’S CHILDREN in Edinburgh Castle.
