Vanishing Point (Theatre Company)
Vanishing Point theatre company was founded in 1999 by Matthew Lenton.
Vanishing Point's work has toured both within the UK and internationally. It has toured to France, Corsica, Sri Lanka, Kosovo and Macedonia, with work including an adaptation of Maeterlinck's Les Aveugles, a wordless show Invisible Man, Lost Ones, Subway and Little Otik.
The company receives funding from the Scottish Arts Council (SAC), the Lottery and the Glasgow City Council. It has launched an initiative, Space 11, aiming to encourage collaboration between young arts organisations in Scotland, by providing them with office space and workshops in order to enhance business skills and create more time for making work.
Famous quotes containing the words point and/or vanishing:
“A poets work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.”
—Salman Rushdie (b. 1947)
“Then, though I prize my friends, I cannot afford to talk with them and study their visions, lest I lose my own. It would indeed give me a certain household joy to quit this lofty seeking, this spiritual astronomy, or search of stars, and come down to warm sympathies with you; but then I know well I shall mourn always the vanishing of my mighty gods.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
