Autumn Space/Time Artists

Our next Space/Time retreat is being held on 4 October at Cove Park.

Space/Time is a paid creative retreat for experienced artists from all disciplines that asks the question “How does an artist keep developing?”

It aims to refresh participants through a stimulating examination of creativity. During the residency, we will explore how creativity can be nourished and how artists can continue challenging themselves to develop.

The residency combines facilitated dialogue - built around a series of self-generated questions - with time for individual reflection and work. It is led by Nicholas Bone and Alice McGrath.

Lost in Music

From about the age of 11 onwards I was obsessed with music. I developed all the usual symptoms: buying too many records, taping songs from the radio, learning the guitar.

For better and worse, it made me what I am today.

‘Lost in Music’: reflecting the inner thoughts, fears and aspirations of 2019’s young generation.

Lost in Music, Scottish director Nicholas Bone’s collaboration with composer Kim Moore (who also produces work as WOLF) has its UK premiere at North Edinburgh Arts from 1-2 March and then plays at Platform, Glasgow on 6-7 March 2019.

An intriguing and engaging mix of gig-theatre and verbatim performance, Lost in Music features new songs inspired by the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice - the story of a talented musical couple’s journey to hell and back - and the voices of young musicians talking about what music means to them and how it informs their lives, friendships and sense of self.
