Precarious Theatre was set up by Marco Biasioli and Liam Grogan in December 2019 to produce new and thought-provoking theatre. Driven by a desire to create challenging theatre which critiques and comments on our relentless and terrifying world, Precarious Theatre works collaboratively to develop exciting and innovative work which asks audiences to examine and question society and how we live in it.
Do not build on the good old days but bad new ones.
MARCO BIASIOLI - Writer/Producer
Born in Rome, Marco lived in London and Moscow before relocating in Manchester, where he completed his PhD in Russian contemporary music at the University of Manchester. His plays examine the relationship between humans and society through the exploration of themes such as work, technology and the complexity of inter-personal relationships in contemporary society. Hanging, his first play, was produced for the Greater Manchester Fringe 2018 whilst his second, Underwater, premiered at GMFringe 2019 before going on to the Edinburgh Fringe the same year. Both were well attended and received in terms of critical praise. His latest play, Failure Studies, is his first work written as part of Precarious Theatre and premiered at the GMFringe 2020/21 to great reception from audience and critics alike.
LIAM GROGAN - Artistic Director/Producer
Liam Grogan is a director and composer from Bristol. His musical work has been performed in Bristol, Athens and Lviv, Ukraine and he is currently completing his PhD in Music at the University of Manchester where he researched how combinations of music and theatre can communicate political and philosophical ideas in concert music. Having been involved in both the performance and production of theatre since a young age, his professional directorial debut came with Precarious Theatre and Biasioli's Failure Studies at the GMFringe 2020/21. As a director, he seeks to develop productive collaborative relationships with his cast, constructing the basis for innovation to spark throughout the rehearsal process. Drawing on influences both theatrical and musical, he aims to access the humanity of the theatrical work, embracing the complex and the absurd to draw out how it can speak to an audience in compelling and engaging ways.
