Work in Progress

Part-talk, part-concert, part-cabaret

One of the UK’s best known artists, Martin Creed won the Turner Prize in 2001 with The Lights Going On And Off. His work is exhibited across the globe including many works involving live music, dance and the use of words — in the form of word-sculptures, talks and songs.

Martin’s new show is a work in progress and is part-talk, part-concert, part-cabaret and will be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival later this year. It is the follow-up to the show Words & Music which he did at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and has played around the world. Some of the themes of the new show are borders – both personal and national – communication in the form of clothes, and words as clothes for feelings, all put together live in Martin’s responsive freestyle way.
