ANNIE GEORGE is a writer, theatre maker and occasional filmmaker, who was born in Kerala India, and is based in Edinburgh. Recent productions include Twa – a collaboration with visual artist Flore Gardner – and the solo shows Home is Not the Place, and The Bridge. Annie has worked with numerous artists and organisations in Scotland, and was an actor and producer in the late ‘90s, with Fringe-First winning CAT. A. Theatre Company. She was awarded the Ignite Fellowship in 2019 by the Scottish Book Trust.
While reflecting on her work in Scottish theatre over the last thirty years, where the process of making theatre has been somewhat colourful and as creative as the artistic outcomes, Annie will be writing about art and politics and the politics of art. From this starting point, she will also explore the unwritten history of Scottish theatre – that is to say, theatre by and about black and brown people in Scotland – to make visible what was made invisible, into something indelible.
‘Just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there’. (from the play Twa)
