What are Fish & Game up to this summer?
Well, our children’s strand is preparing to get into some R&D in the Autumn for our early years Xmas show at Cumbernauld Theatre, How To Be A Christmas Tree, and also for a new Polar Bear adventure coming in 2016. We’re very excited about both of these.
Meanwhile our artistic director, Eilidh MacAskill, has been based in Brighton and also working in role as Imaginate’s research artist, exploring gender and sexuality in children’s performance under the title of Gendersaurus Rex. Her blog is here at www.gendersaurusrex.wordpress.com and Imaginate are running a Breakfast Club event on the 9th September in Edinburgh where you can find out more about this project – info here: www.imaginate.org.uk
Eilidh has also been presenting her new show for adults, STUD, which also explores gender and masculinity through the medium of horses and DIY. She’s now performed this at BUZZCUT, Steakhouse Live in London and at Latitude, and she’s looking forward to bringing it to the BUZZCUT weekender at Forest Fringe in Edinburgh on the 29th and 30th August.
Then Eilidh’s very pleased to have been programmed as part of Camden People’s Theatre’s festival of feminist work, Calm Down, Dear alongside other wonderful artist friends like Ira Brand, Louise Orwin, Stephanie Black and Emma Frankland. Eilidh’s had the privilege of working with Emma as a dramaturg on her new piece Rituals For Change which explores gender transition and the fluid notion of change.
And with all this action, Eilidh’s made herself another website to cover her solo projects and collaborations. You can see it unfurl and grow here: www.eilidhmacaskill.com
