He is a member of circuit-bending curios The Modified Toy Orchestra and has recently directed Kindle Theatre’s THE FURIES, a glam-rock operetta based on Aeschylus’s revenge tragedy.

Graeme will be giving a talk titled ‘rekindling the old flame, prodding the wound’. He writes:

At their best they catch you in a passionate whirl, and are all-consuming;

at worst they are a fumble in the dark, best forgotten about.

Shows are love affairs. Intense comings-together of the elements;

to be toyed with, writhed-over (or perhaps hurried out of the door).

They are a chance concoction of persons, a place and a moment in time, never to be repeated…

 

Until, that is, they call you out of the blue and find you in a moment of weakness…
