Every year on the 27th of March, people involved in theatre from around the world participate in World Theatre Day. It began in 1961 under the aegis of the International Theatre Institute, a cultural branch of UNESCO, and has been ongoing ever since.
Two years ago, a group of international theatre workers (practitioners, publicists, academics, bloggers) came together online and decided it was time to use the power of the Web to extend the reach and visibility of WTD.

Marcus Markou is the chairman of the UK based online media company Dynamis Media. He is also a playwright and has written and produced two full length plays. His current play Ordinary Dreams is on at London's Trafalgar Studios in the West End.
In this interview I talk to Marcus about theatre and entrepreneurship, about the self-sufficient financial model he has devised and how he manages a business career alongside the pursuit of theatre and writing.
This is a short video that takes a peek at the location and background behind the site specific production "The Rain Emperor", directed by Judy Jacob and based on her late father's incredible body of musical compositions.
