ANGUS MCPHEE - Weaver of Grass
ANGUS MCPHEE or MACPHEE was a crofter from Uist who spent almost 50 years in a Highland psychiatric hospital. During this time he chose not to speak - instead he wove a series of incredible costumes out of grass. These he hung on trees in the hospital grounds.
This blog follows the progress of HORSE + BAMBOO THEATRE as they develop and tour a show about Angus....
