Mathilde Lopez


Mathilde trained at Central Saint Martins in Performance Design, has a Master in Theatre Directing from Birkbeck College and was a founding member of National Theatre Wales. 

Previously assistant director and literary manager for Theatre Royal Stratford East, she is a freelance director and the founder and artistic director of August 012.

Her company brings international plays to Wales and develops ideas and innovative staging with actors, designers, musicians, creative technicians and participants from the community.  Anchored in text, her work is recognisable for its take on space, its irreverence for theatre conventions, its relentless research into aesthetic and investigation into audience involvement. 

She regularly teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and is the recipient of a Creative Wales Award which enabled her to further and develop her work with opera.
