Damian Kell appears at West Yorkshire Playhouse in 12 Proposals for a Better Europe this week.
This is a new collaboration between directors Nicolai Khalezin and Chris Thorpe as part of the Transform 12 Festival.
Internationally-acclaimed writer and director Nicolai Khalezin came to UK in 2007 with his theatre company Belarus Free Theatre. He has worked extensively with Chris Thorpe of Unlimited Theatre but this is the first time they have made a brand new piece as collaborators.Overview
Damian’s acting roles have taken him from the West End to West Yorkshire Playhouse and from the latest series of Doctor Who to the award-winning Not Going Out. Experienced on the live comedy circuit, his sketch group Stickmen was described as ‘A rollercoaster of comedy genius’ by The Scotsman and was one of Time Out’s ‘Top 25 Shows to see in Edinburgh’.
As a writer/performer he was invited onto BBC Talent and he's now writing his first TV drama on commission and a production office has opened for his first feature film at Elstree Studios.
A proficient musician, Damian has won arts festivals as a pianist and recorded on a Lesley Garrett album as a singer. As a sportsman, he's played rugby at Twickenham and won national medals in athletics. He is also a specialist in early Merovingian Kings.About Sainou
