Gavin Quinn is a graduate of the Samuel Beckett Centre, Trinity College Dublin. He is, with Aedín Cosgrove, co-founder and joint artistic director of Pan Pan Theatre. Quinn has directed all Pan Pan Theatre productions. He has also directed Tom Johnson's The Four-Note Opera, Carmen and The (Little) Magic Flute for Opera Theatre Company, as well as Cosi Fan Tutte for Opera Ireland. In 2005 he coordinated Pan-Pan's ONE project, a once-off installation involving 100 actors perfoming privately to individual audience members in 100 specially designed rooms. Quinn and Pan Pan have brought shows all around Europe and further afield. His Mandarin-language production of Synge's The Playboy of the Western World, transposed to a dubious Beijing hair salon-cum-massage parlour, opened in the Beijing Oriental Pioneer Theatre in March 2006 and was performed (with English surtitles) in the Project Arts Centre in December of the same year. He is a board member of the Irish Theatre Institute.
