I Look: I Divine, written and performed by Mark Kydd played for four performances in the Brighton Fringe Festival in May 2013. Please click HERE a new page will open with more about the Brighton production including reviews and photos.
The show is part of a larger project detailed below, Mark is in the early stages of making A(s)symmetry.
I am hopeful we can stage a re-titled I Look: I Divine in Mark's native Scotland and looking for venues and producing partners.
A professional development programme for Mark Kydd.
Born in Dundee and trained in Edinburgh, Mark has worked professionally in Scotland and beyond since graduating from QMC in 1988. His work to date has encompassed many fields, including repertory, small scale touring and educational projects. New writing and devised work, as well as established texts, have featured heavily in his career .
His work on Spain for Glasgay! in 2011 marked a turning point. This demanding solo piece, co-created with James Ley, included much material drawn from Mark's own experience.
This is a professional development programme exploring new approaches to theatre making. Through relationships with mentors and collaborators Mark will develop his talents as a queer theatre maker, broadening his understanding of what it is to make solo work.
I Look: I Divine – an exploration of, and inquiry into, the experience of growing up gay in Scotland alongside gay siblings. An autobiographical piece, as a response to Christopher Coe’s novel I Look Divine.
A(s)symmetry – an exploration of symmetry as the idealised state in relation to my own physicality (specifically, my scoliosis) and any impact, real or imagined, this has had on my life.
