Project Eigg

We went back to Thoresby One studio to experience Alexander Stevenson’s Project Eigg, a new Sideshow commission. A performative lecture devised from a two month research period Alex spent as artist in residence on the Isle of Eigg in Scotland. The audience experienced the performance on revolving seats.

"An original idea that consisted of revolving visual angles showing three very different depictions of the same story" Billy

"I enjoyed the performance, I was interested in the theme. Afterwards we got to spend time with the cast and technical team, to our suprise most of them were down from Glasgow. We discovered one guy Lee Cunningham (an ex student from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Arts) knew Laura Simpson as well as fellow Nine Trades artists Ben, Frazer and Alan." Bruce
