Adam Rohe gets to spend all of his time doing whatever he wants. Since quitting his compromise-job earlier this year he has directed three plays and acted in two, and filled the remaining (obviously ample) spare time with photography, poetry, music, set design and construction, and planning a motorcycle trip around the world. He is very passionate about creating spaces for people to play in. He wants all of you to have whatever you want.
He is interested in surreal and absurdist works, and loves creating comic works with a dark underbelly. He really likes putting things where they don’t belong. His debut acting role with Silo Theatre Company was in Taylor Mac’s outrageous black comedy Hir. He has done extensive assistant directing with Te Rehia Theatre Company and is a founding member of Dusty Rooms Productions, which focuses on comedies with significant mental health themes. He directed the Pākehā inception of Ionesco’s The Chairs as part of Te Pou Theatre’s diversity season, and Camilla Walker’s Such Stuff As Dreams as part of Te Pou’s Rangatahi series.
