Eric Rose is an award winning director and creator of live performance and the Artistic Director of Calgary's acclaimed Ghost River Theatre. His passion for the creative process has inspired the diversity of his theatrical experience spanning: large scale contemporary and classical theatre, site- specific performance, performance creation, devising theatre, new play development, physical theatre and dance.

Eric's work embraces a hybrid of high tech visual spectacle with low-fi theatrical magic and is developed through a significant investment in imaginative research and development.

He is honoured to have been the Playwright in Residence at Alberta Theatre Projects, to be named to Avenue Magazine's Top 40 Under 40 class of 2012 and to be the recipient of the 2012 Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Emerging Artist Award for his body of work as a theatrical innovator.

As an educator, Eric has taught for: Globe Theatre Regina, University of Toronto, Theatre Calgary, Charlottetown Festival, Tarragon Theatre, NextFest, Mount Royal University, Red Deer and Sheridan College, University of Calgary, Theatre Ontario, Artstrek and many others.

Eric is thrilled to have Ghost River Theatre as the Company in Residence at Division of Drama in the School of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Calgary for the 2015/16 Season. Eric will be teaching Drama 460 a full year course focused on devising a new production, Window utilizing GRT's signature aesthetic innovation.
