David Rosenberg is an experimental theatre director who co-founded Shunt.
We first encountered the work of David Rosenberg in a railway arch in Bethnal Green. With his collective of Shunt artists he orchestrated one of the most unexpected theatrical reveals we had ever experienced in Dance Bear Dance. We first worked with him at Fuel as a key collaborator on Ether Frolics with Sound&Fury. Then, whilst producing the Lyric Hammersmith programme, we invited him to create Contains Violence on the terrace at the Lyric.
We were intrigued by the ideas developed in that show and through conversations with David thought it might be a good idea for him to work with a choreographer, so we introduced him to the brilliant Frauke Requardt. Electric Hotel was the result of those conversations and experiments.
