  6. Rufus Norris talks about Doctor Dee (by ManchesterIntFest)

    "I can’t say what it’s going to be."

About me

Doctor Dee is a new work composed by Damon Albarn and directed by Rufus Norris.

In the age before science and magic parted company, Doctor John Dee was the ultimate Renaissance Man: astrologer, alchemist, mathematician and spy, he coined the term ‘British Empire’ and equipped the Elizabethan Court with the knowledge to make it manifest. The inspiration for both Marlowe’s Faust and Shakespeare’s Prospero, Dee studied the Heavens, he spoke with Archangels, and he paid a bitter personal price.

Doctor Dee explores ritual and symbolism in this country, past and present, using John Dee – one of England’s greatest but largely forgotten men – as catalyst.

Rufus Norris is a theatre and opera directorwhose West End and Broadway shows include Cabaret,
Don Giovanni, Festen, Les Liaisons Dangereuses
and Vernon God Little.

Damon Albarn is a musician whose bands and projects include Blur, Gorillaz, The Good the Bad and the Queen and Monkey: Journey to the West for MIF07.
