Who We Are
Project on a Bus has been conceived by Juliet Knight and Carrie Mueller
Juliet Knight’s experience as a theatre maker includes a diversity of acting, directing and teaching roles. As an actor she has worked for many companies including The Globe, DV8 physical theatre company and Bill Kenwright’s “Caught in the Net”. Her repertoire of directing has covered the past 15 years including a cast of 50 in NYT’s “Zigger Zagger" at Wilton’s Music Hall to “Cardboard Dad” an intimate two hander with Theatre Cmyru. She started directing with Stella Duffy's "Prime Resident" at Soho Theatre combining authentic performance with a highly executed physical language. She went on to work with Tanika Gupta and made a twice returning sell out show of "White Boy" at Soho Theatre. Michael Billington reviewed it as “A triumph of modern theatre going where liberal theatre is yet to dare”. A personal highlight of this production was taking it to the Home Office and engaging in the discussions around knife crime policy. This also led her to work for Clean Break Theatre Company, making work with and for incarcerated women. She specialises in new writing, collaborating with writers in the rehearsal room to make current, playful and political work. Excitingly her most current project STORM will play at the 2022 Vaults Festival. Alongside her role of Lecturer at UEL she is also an Associate Director for National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, Tutor at award winning Open Door and a lecturer at Central School of Speech and Drama. @julietknightbop
