The Macedonian Oliver Micevski is one of the most exciting European theatre directors and the founder of Oliver Micevski Theatre Company. He holds a BA in Theatre Directing from the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Skopje, Macedonia, and an MA specialization in Ibsen at the Ibsen Center at the University of Oslo, Norway. Currently, he is living and working between London and Copenhagen. He has directed in some of the most renowned European theatres, in Skopje, Budapest, Prague, Cannes, Dublin, Copenhagen and so forth.

Oliver Micevski’s staging of  "4.48 Psychosis" takes a decisive turn from the existing interpretations of the text that impose several challenges on its handler with its unescapable mystique. Micevski’s staging is a praise of life, the innate desire and passion for living even in the midst of its darkest, that turns away from sensationalised suicidal thoughts and images.

Sarah Kane is a controversial English playwright, and in her plays shows themes of redemptive love, sexual desire, pain, cruelty, and death. She struggled with intense manic depression her entire life but she never stopped working, and for a period was the writer-in-residence at the Royal Court theatre. Kane’s life was brought to a premature end when she committed suicide at London's King's College Hospital.
