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....

New Angus short film

In preparation for the launch of the new H+B website tomorrow - and also to help Esther sell the 2013 tour of Angus - Weaver of Grass - we asked our wonderful technician Christina Eddowes to make a short film of the Angus show (although she was told by Esther 'not to give away the big set-pieces').

This is it - hope you like it! If you bump into Esther let her know (she's in Edinburgh and Glasgow at the moment). By the way Loz Kaye, our Musical Director responsible for putting together the music for the show, created the special mash-up of music for the film.
