WHO WE ARE
Undone Theatre is a London-based theatre company focussing on experimenting with different forms of storytelling and undoing classical narratives.
Our work has been described as "brilliantly ambitious" (Kally Lloyd-Jones, Byre Theatre director), "leav[ing] you with a sense that those involved have plenty to offer us in the future" (Everything Theatre). We have been supported by Arts Council England, Boundless Theatre, Theatre Deli, Omnibus Theatre, VAULT Festival, and Raze Collective.
Whether it is an entirely new piece or a complete rewrite of a classical text, we create relevant new work that questions and challenges traditional forms of storytelling. We are interested in showcasing queer perspectives, non-linear narratives and stories that voice multiple viewpoints.
Gabriele Uboldi (he/they) is an award-winning and Arts Council England funded director, playwright, dramaturg and producer based in London. They are a migrant artist with a focus on formal experimentation, mediatised theatre and queer performance. They are an alumnus of the MA Text and Performance at RADA and Birkbeck (2021), and have previously worked with the Young Vic, the Barbican, and the Bridge Theatre.
Uboldi's most recent work includes "ambitious", "moving", "bold and fascinating" Selected Recordings of Us, which was part of the top 15% of submissions to the Traverse Theatre (2020). His autobiographical and site-specific digital piece LONDON / LONDRA has received the Lynne Segal award (BiGS: Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality) and has been called a "compelling", "exciting", "accessible", "radical attempt at empathy" (Poltern).
Uboldi's style is heavily influenced by his background in Social Anthropology as well as his interests in performance theory, performance in cross-cultural contexts, queer performance and relational aesthetics.
