How Theatre Works
How Theatre Works, Adam Dant
Our audiences are important to us - which is why we asked Adam Dant, the 21st century's Hogarth, to spend some time getting to know them, and How Theatre Works is the result. A wildly unique and fantastical look at how the National Theatre might, just might actually work...

About the Artist
Born in 1967 in Cambridge, Adam studied Fine Art Printmaking at The Royal College of Art, MS University, Baroda, India, Liverpool School of Art and HDK Berlin.
He was the recipient of The Rome Scholarship in Printmaking in 1993 and in 2003 was the winner of The Jerwood Drawing Prize.
Dant’s monumental narrative ink drawings combine depictions of familiar public spaces and architecture with various mythologies and histories. Their construction involves a great deal of historical research which accounts for the ‘multi-layered’ and ‘information- heavy’ aspect to his work.
Adam’s work is exhibited internationally and is in the collections of Tate Britain, MOMA New York, Deutsche Bank, UBS, Musee D’Art Contemporain, Lyon, HRH Prince of Wales, Museum of London & various other public and private collections.
