The Soloist – Christian Noelle Charles

Christian Noelle Charles is a Black female artist working through video, print-making and live performance – a New York native currently living and working in Glasgow, Scotland whose work takes inspiration from today’s pop culture, modern performance techniques, and personal experiences. In this conversation, we explore the different kinds of control and freedom that different artistic mediums make possible, and the ways in which an artistic practice changes when you decide to move thousands of miles to live in a new city on the other side of the world.

The Soloist – Kieran Hurley

A conversation with performer and playwright Kieran Hurley about gig theatre, storytelling from behind a desk, the long-missed Arches and the optimism of making shows about the end of the world. Kieran’s best known shows include his break-out hit Beats – soon to be a major movie – the two-hander Chalk Farm and the Fringe First award-winning Heads Up. He frequently collaborates with theatre-maker Julia Taudevin and is currently working on commissions for the Traverse, Edinburgh and Perth Theatre. The twine game Kieran mentions as an inspiration for Heads Up is Queers in Love at the End of the World.

The Soloist – Scottee

A conversation with queer performance artist Scottee about class, theatre, finding an audience – and making that audience feel welcome. Recorded in a slightly echo-y room at the end of 2016 and released to mark the publication of the script for Bravado, Scottee’s memoir of working class masculinity. Scottee is a prolific creator with two full-length solo shows – Putting Words in Your Mouth and Bravado – and multiple smaller projects out in the world since the interview was recorded. These include the ongoing Unwarranted Collaboration series in which Scottee sources paintings from house clearances, charity shops and junk yards, and defaces them with slogans, From Wivenhoe, With Love for the Heritage Open Days festival and the recurring online workshop Notepad Warrior ‘to channel your inner art activist’. In this interview, we talk about what drives him to make new shows, the sometimes unwelcoming culture of performance art, his collaboration with Chris Goode in making The Worst...

The Soloist – Rachel Mars

In a loud and busy cafe, I met with performer and writer Rachel Mars to talk about the relationship between her solo shows and her ongoing collaborations with Greg Wohead and nat tarrab. Along the way we talk about how the Fringe festival economy convinces everyone that shows have to be 50 minutes long, and try to work out when and where performance is ‘queer enough’.

The Soloist – FK Alexander

This is The Soloist, an occasional podcast series about solo performance and solo performers, created by Steve Greer. In this episode, I chat with performance artist FK Alexander about her practice and the forms of collaboration that make it possible. Recorded in summer 2017 ahead of her appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe, FK tells me about the kinds of work involved in I Could Go On Singing, a one-to-one performance in which she sings Judy Garland’s Somewhere Over the Rainbow, over and over, while holding your hand.
