Abigail Butler is a British theatre director and film maker based in Paris who is interested in the use of theatrical language within film and a filmic language within theatre. Her work often draws direct inspiration from existing literature and film, exploring both how personal obsession with certain books and movies transforms them into myth and more generally what changes in the telling and retelling of stories, and what remains. Domesticity and mysticism and the moments where they intersect in the female experience are important themes in her work.

Abigail is a member of the video art collective Available Light.
