Jamil Keating


Part of Works Ahead 2015, presented by Word of Warning + Contact

####In Brief
The confessions of a Marxist poseur… From achingly earnest teen-activist to wannabe Olivier, the scuffles and skirmishes of a young man seeking his place in the world.

####Who is he?
Jamil Keating is an emerging theatre-maker, writer and performer. Affected is his first full solo work, the first step in an artistic journey of trying to find the balance between being overwhelmed by perverse enthusiasm for the absurdity of life, and trying to say something of substance about it… simply.

To date he has made small pieces for Hazard (as Tracey Lumpkin) and Emergency, and has been an emerging artist in residence at the Whitworth.

Commissioned by hÅb, co-produced with Contact.
Project Mentor: Peader Kirk.
