Paul Castagno

Professor of Theatre

Paul Castagno Wins Major Award at Oslo International Theater Festival

This past Spring, Professor Castagno helmed and sound designed the successful departmental production of Hedda Gabler which StarNews described as “thoughtfully and precisely directed.” In June 2018, he conducted playwriting workshops and interviews at KHiO and was the winner of the Oslo International Acting Festival award. In April 2019, on our Mainstage theatre, he will direct  the North American Premiere of Darkness, a play collectively written by 5 Nordic playwrights as part of the EU Collective Play Project. In the last two years he has published in Theatre Journal, Korean Theatre Journal, Theatre Times, The International Journal of Arts and Humanities, and has articles forthcoming in Praxis, and a new anthology on contemporary playwriting published by Methuen. He is under contract now with Waveland Press for a new book, Playwriting Intensive. In June 2017, he was invited by Theatre Grob (Copenhagen) where he gave workshops and a master class at the Royal Danish Theatre. During this trip abroad, Dr. Castagno presented at Oxford University’s Theatre in Translation conference, presiding at a stage reading of Darkness, and in Hamburg at the Theatre Welt festival.

His widely cited book New Playwriting Strategies: Language and Media in the 21st Century published by Routledge, 2012, provided the basis for the EUCP grant, and its theories and techniques of polyvocality and hybrid plays are at the heart of the EUCP mission. He is currently involved as editor of EUCP anthology. He is a former Fulbright scholar the first from UNCW to win the UK award.
