Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. We make original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people who are in it. Whatever form it takes, our work begins and ends with the people in the room. Over the last 20 years, we've collaborated with a shifting constellation of artists, performers and people who've never done anything like this before. Our work seeks to create the circumstances for a conversation between strangers...

No More Drama

No More Drama

“Something different is happening in contemporary theatre. Across the world the artform is changing; sometimes radically, sometimes discreetly, but quite perceptibly. When actors do not present us with characters, when the boundaries of the theatre space loosen and spill performance into the world around us, when the play is certainly no longer the thing, how do we talk about our theatre?”

No More Drama, a new book about contemporary performance published by Project Press, aims to take the chill off the terms postdramatic, documentary and avant-garde. A collection of descriptive and illuminating essays on the work of international artists such as Pan Pan Theatre Company, Rimini Protokoll, Lola Arias, Philippe Quesne, Richard Maxwell, Elevator Repair Service, Nature Theater Oklahoma, Quarantine, Krétakör and others, it is about how theatre is making meaning of the world – without making a drama about it.

No More Drama is edited by Peter Crawley and Willie White.
