Director / Playwright / Dramaturg / Academic
Complex and demanding projects excite me.
Much of Greg’s scholarly and creative research work focuses on intercultural theatre practices. His research into post-apartheid theatre is widely published. His primary area of research is in contemporary South African theatre with an emphasis on post-apartheid plays. He has edited a collection of contemporary plays and co-edited two books on contemporary drama, theatre, and performance. He worked in The Wits School of Arts in Johannesburg for over 10 years during which time he headed up the writing and directing programmes in the division of Dramatic Art and taught courses in theatre history, directing, acting, comedy in performance, and playwriting. In 2015 he took up a one-year fixed-term headship at Wits University in The Wits School of Arts of the then Dramatic Arts department. He also spent two years at the AFDA School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance (Johannesburg) as the Head of School of Live Performance.
