Juan Zorrilla Exhibition

Juan Zorrilla was born in Tenerife. He created a new painting technique called Bañorrelieve. His early works show the transition from abstraction to figurative or realistic painting in which we can observe his concerns about human behavior. Along with painting he takes an interest on other ways of visual communication such as photography (Fotonoviembre, Tenerife 2005) comic and video experimentation. (OVNI, CCCB Barcelona) His work has been exhibited in Tenerife, Madrid, Barcelona, London and Edinburgh, city where he lives since 2006. Visit Juan's website

IRVINE WELSH

‘Irvine Welsh is now a national monument.’ (The Scotsman, 1997)

"I kind of don't really have much to add about Trainspotting, other than I'm still interested in the characters and enjoy writing about them. As long as that vibe is happening with me, I'll carry on doing so." (Irvine Welsh)

Irvine will world-premiere new work with a Trainspotting pulse.

What does that mean? There’s one way to find out more…..this is it.

THE FIRE ENGINES

"I liked Orange Juice. I thought they were great. There was an electric group. The Fire Engines. I loved them. What's happened to them? If they had been from America they would have been world-famous." (Mark E Smith / The Fall).

The Fire Engine reform for the third (and perhaps final?) time.

ARTHUR BAKER

In The Dark Ink Project - choreographer Luke Pell

In the Ink Dark is a new project from Luke Pell and collaborators. A dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation. Throughout May and June a series of conversations and encounters with different people in Leith and Edinburgh will lead to a week of live dance performances in unique spaces across the city, opening as part of LeithLate17 in the Leith Theatre. 

Performed by an eclectic group of dance and performance artists with an original music composition from Scott Twynholm, In the Ink Dark collects and explores - people from Leith and Edinburgh’s - experiences of loss and landscape, memory and materiality through dance, design and poetry.

Luke draws upon his own and others stories to make objects, dances and installations that can only exist because of different people coming together to listen and to share. This project invites people from all walks of life to talk with him, to share, reflect and celebrate something they have loved and lost. In the Ink Dark is an immersive project with different moments and modes of participation, an accumulative poem and choreography - for live and virtual space - that can only be made by the many people it meets with.
