Julie McNamara
Writer, performer and Artistic Director of Vital Xposure, Julie McNamara's work is passionately political and an unashamed celebration of excluded voices.
Vital Xposure is a small scale, disability-led theatre and new media company funded by Arts Council England.
The drive behind Julie McNamara's creative productions, her writing and theatre making is a search for social justice. Her work can move an audience from chilling landscapes of madness into grotesque absurdity with disconcerting ease. Hers is a narrative style with a strong visual aesthetic, peeling back layers of duplicity to reveal uncomfortable truths. She has a penchant for saying the unsayable with a wicked underlying humour.
