Greg Sinclair is an award-winning musician and live artist. He makes children’s theatre with two clear aims: he starts with a musical idea, and he collaborates with children to make his work. His performance ‘Sonata for a Man and a Boy’ was the winner of the 2013 Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland award for Best Production for Children and Young People. His solo piece ‘I Do, Do I’ has been performed at festivals across the UK. Greg is the recipient of the 2016 Children’s Theatre Fellowship from The Arts Foundation.
Katy Wilson has worked freelance with Starcatchers for 10 years. She is a magpie for bright colours and has found her visual art background totally compatible with the things babies are attracted to. Katy likes to create new worlds and environments for people to feel good , relaxed and inspired in – often sophisticated and far from conventional baby friendly spaces – she likes to shake things up.
Peep was first presented at NEAC as a work in progress in March 2008 before being presented in July 2008 and again in December 2009 as part of macrobert’s Christmas programme. It was an interactive theatrical installation experience especially for children aged 0-3 and their accompanying adults.
You can expect an exciting space to explore, inspiring objects to discover, live music and performance and of course… toast!
