Despite pandemic challenges, Savage creatively led the project, organising remote auditions and rehearsals through online video platforms.

Lasting 15 minutes, Uber Happy combines the talents of three bicycle-riding actors, playful dance routines, light-hearted music, and a series of amusing, unexpected delivery scenarios.

Oedipus and Kings of War was produced by Internationaal Theater Amsterdam, and screened as part of the Wuzhen International Theatre Festival 2021, from 17th October to 20th October.

Ivo van Hove’s Kings of War merges Shakespeare’s plays Henry V, Henry VI, and Richard III into a dynamic performance focusing on political leadership, power, and the ethical dilemmas faced by rulers. Alternatively, Oedipus directed by Robert Icke and performed by the International Theater Amsterdam ensemble, reimagines Oedipus as a 21st-century politician. On election night, he uncovers a devastating secret about his identity, leading to a tragic downfall that highlights the fragility of existence and the challenge of controlling one’s destiny.
