Vanishing Point (Theatre Company) - History


Formed in 1999 in Glasgow, Scotland by graduates of the University of Glasgow. Its first production was an adaptation of Les Aveugles (The Blind) by Maurice Maeterlinck, performed in total darkness. The piece was performed at BAC in London in a season entitled Playing in the Dark. The company's first major show was in 2004, entitled Lost Ones, a surreal show concerning a man, a murder on a mountain, the little creatures who are smuggling things out of him years later and a void on the other side of the skirting board. Lost Ones went on to tour internationally. Since then the company has created the shows Mancub (written by Douglas Maxwell), Subway (a collaboration with a group of musicians from Kosovo) and Little Otik (adapted from the film by Jan Svankmajer). The company has co-produced with The Soho Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith, The Citizens Theatre and The National Theatre of Scotland.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    It is my conviction that women are the natural orators of the race.
    Eliza Archard Connor, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 9, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    Most events recorded in history are more remarkable than important, like eclipses of the sun and moon, by which all are attracted, but whose effects no one takes the trouble to calculate.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is the true office of history to represent the events themselves, together with the counsels, and to leave the observations and conclusions thereupon to the liberty and faculty of every man’s judgement.
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)
