Glenn Earle, Chair of the Young Vic Board, said: “I am delighted today to welcome Farah and Varun to our board. They are established leaders in their own fields and I know that our board and our theatre will benefit hugely from their intellect, passion and creativity. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our recently retired Trustees for their many years of invaluable service and unwavering support to the Young Vic. They will forever remain dear friends of this theatre”.
Varun Chandra, Managing Partner of Hakluyt, said “Of all the theatre I’ve watched over the years, it is at the Young Vic that I’ve seen the most daring, the most provocative, and the most thought-provoking performances. I’m therefore delighted to be joining the board of this fantastic institution, one of the most brilliant and innovative of its kind in the world. The breadth of the Young Vic’s work and impact is extraordinary, and its success in identifying, enabling and promoting emerging talent is particularly noteworthy. It will be an honour to play a role in furthering this mission, and I’m greatly looking forward to working with Kwame, Despina and the other members of their outstanding team.”
Farah Ramzan Golant, Chief Executive Officer of kyu EMEA, said “It is an exciting time to join the Young Vic as Kwame and the team unleash the visceral power of theatre anew. I am inspired by their vision to curate experiences for audiences which we are all longing to share. It is a privilege to be a part of this movement that is so uniquely Young Vic in its voice and profound cultural effect.”
