Maisie Newman is a working class, Jewish, performance director and choreographer for theatre and opera and a multi-award winning poet.

Her work is highly visual and heavily influenced by European practitioners. She has worked as an artist, academic and writer and has exhibited, curated and performed in some of the UK’s most pioneering spaces which continues to influence her work as a performance director.

Her experience as a poet and translator determines her radical relationship to text as a devising and design-lead director and also as a writer and dramaturg. 

Maisie has an MA in Fine Art from The Ruskin School of Art (Oxford University), a BA in Drama and Theatre studies from Liverpool Hope University and trained at Bristol Old Vic on their ‘Made in Bristol’ programme (2014/25) .

She was recently the Young Company Director at The Bristol Old Vic and creative fellow at UCL University.

She has lead workshops, seminars and lectures on theatre and performance for people aged 5-25 and for undergraduates and post-graduates at universities including Oxford University, York University, UWE and UCL.
