Daniel Fish

Daniel Fish is a New York–based director who makes work across the boundaries of theater, video, and opera. Drawing on a broad range of forms and subject matter including plays, film scripts, contemporary fiction, essays, and found audio, he's been called "an auteur force in the American theater." Fish's work has been performed at theaters and festivals throughout the US and Europe including: Vooruit, Festival TransAmériques, BAM Next Wave Festival, Noorderzon Festival, the Juilliard School, and the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has taught at Juilliard, the Yale School of Drama, Bard College, and Princeton University. In January, he'll present A (radically condensed and expanded) Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again After David Foster Wallace and screen Eternal as part of the Walker's Out There series.
