Teatro Vivo is run by Joint Artistic Directors Mark Stevenson and Kas Darley, who have been with the organisation since it's conception in 2004:

Kas Darley

Kas trained as an actress at LAMDA, graduating in 2003. She has worked extensively in theatre touring widely in the UK , Europe and South America.

As Artistic Associate, Kas co-produces all our shows and has performed in many of our productions. She also came up with the original concept for Hothouse. Kas trained as a lawyer before turning to acting, and is glad that her training is occasionally of use in running Teatro Vivo.

Kas is currently based in West Dorset, where she is hatching plans to bring Teatro Vivo’s work to the South West.

Mark Stevenson

Mark trained as an actor and director at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and VGIK in Moscow.

He has performed as an actor for the last 26 years for numerous companies, and his directing includes work for Ampersand, Theatre Babel and GLYPT, as well as being a Learning Associate at the NT.

For Teatro Vivo, Mark has performed in most of our productions as well as directing Supermarket Shakespeare, Great British Wedding, our audio version of Evelyn’s Roots and online version of Grimm’s Collecting Agency.
