On Sunday the latest of our January resident artists heads to the Marly.
Grace Gibson is a theatre-maker and director whose work curiously dissects the things in life that often seem mundane or uninteresting, aiming to provoke audiences to consider the beauty of them. She has an MA in Advanced Theatre Practice from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama where she is now a visiting lecturer. She has been commissioned and supported by Camden People’s Theatre and The Campsite as well as collaborating with Nick Wood for the International Federation of Theatre Research.
She placed 4th in the All England dance finals in Character Dance aged 11.
‘The aim of my residency is to become a master of Musical Chairs. To find techniques and learn tactics in order to become the best, the winner, the only one left. To be the last one sitting, and then to work out what happens when I stand up again.
I will be working on a couple of new projects whilst at The Marlborough, including “Hold Music,” a new collaboration between myself and writer Jack Nicholls. I will also be using the time to refill my mind creatively and find different ways of producing material whether that be on land or at sea.’
