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....

The set has a trial run

Experimenting with the set day! We tried out the new ideas about setting of projectors with cloth roughly laid over the frames. Excellent - lots of decisions clarified in one session. The main thing was to discover that we can use side projections without compromising the image and, in particular, having to take up space in the audience seating...


Tomorrow we meet with Loz Kaye, the Musical Director on the show, and discuss the shortlisting of the 9 people who applied for the Gaelic singer/musician role with him. More excitement expected!
