Some people see a majority and a minority. I see equal groups, I see a whole.

It’s about inclusion. It’s about understanding how identities are constructed, performed and sustained. It’s about understanding the experience of those identities, without assuming or homogenising.

I want to make performance research that is shared and effects change in the world. Global change starts with personal change. It starts with finding out more about who we are. It also starts with joy.

Enjoyment, pleasure, fun: These things are very, very important.

It’s about movement.

I am about life before death.

About Into The New 2015 | a festival of new work from final year students of the BA Contemporary Performance Practice course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

As we open the Pandora’s box of Into The New this year, we can be sure that the work of this group of graduating students will raise some ‘impertinent questions’. Their performances seek to offer intellect and challenge, hope and humour, bravery and commitment.

Your role, as audience is to ‘domesticate’ their ideas, to deal with them and perhaps to explain them, to yourselves, and to each other. With that we wish you luck, as the class of 2015 may refuse to be tamed!
