Graham Eatough In Conversation

21 Woodlands Terrace, Glasgow, G3 6DF

3 September 2016

In conversation with Katrina Brown, Director of The Common Guild, theatre maker Graham Eatough talked about his experience of developing ‘At Twilight’ with Simon Starling, with particular focus on the performances. He also offered his thoughts on theatricality and visual art more generally - the recent ‘theatrical turn’ within the visual arts in the context of an historical anti-theatricality.

‘At Twilight: A play for two actors, three musicians, one dancer, eight masks (and a donkey costume)’ took place on the 26, 27 and 28 August at Holmwood House, a National Trust of Scotland property on the south side of Glasgow.

Graham Eatough is a theatre maker who also works in visual arts and film, and worked in collaboration with Simon Starling on ‘At Twilight’, he is co-writer of the script and director of the performance. His most recent projects include directing 'Lanark: A Life in Three Acts' for the Edinburgh International Festival and the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow which won the Herald Angel Award, 'HeLa' by Adura Onahsile which won Scottish Arts Club Best Scottish Production at the Edinburgh Fringe, and 'The Making of Us', an interdisciplinary collaboration with artist Graham Fagen for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012.
