Under the Influence
This event has been cancelled
Under the Influence is a residency initiative at the Nightingale that gives established artists the chance to reflect on their practice and acknowledge their influences. This month the Nightingale is celebrating the work of the profoundly influential artist Graeme Miller. Site-specific theatre-maker and composer of many things, including music, Graeme will be on-site at the Nightingale during September/October and we will be programming a series of events for audiences to explore his fascinating work.
Graeme Miller is an artist, theatre maker and composer. Emerging from the bold and influential stage work of Impact Theatre Co-operative in the 1980s, a group he co-founded, his own work now embraces a wide range of media. With the idea of being ‘a composer of many things that may include music’, he has made theatre, dance, installations and interventions. Often reflecting a sense of landscape and place, he regularly makes site-specific works to commission.
As the the Nightingale’s Artistic Director Steven Brett puts it, Graeme’s art “… strikes you down with its beauty and simplicity.” Engaging with a range of mediums, Graeme creates art through dance, music, video and installation, all with a similar thematic basis. Often through site-specific work, urban and rural landscapes become the setting for, and the reflection of, a shared human experience.
