Iain Finlay will be in France for the rest of May after being awarded the prestigious Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship. The residency takes place in the Hotel Chevillon which is run by the Fondation Grez sur Loing near Paris. This was a place where Stevenson went to write and a small number of Scottish writers are invited each year.

Wolf

Iain Finlay is involved in creating an ensemble piece of theatre entitled WOLF. There are various performances of the piece coming up this year. There is more information to be found at www.authenticartist.co.uk.

WOLF is a site-responsive theatre experience devised by Kath Burlinson and the Authentic Artist Collective. We will be performing in a car park, a barn and a wood at Pulse Fringe Festival and in The Caves at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2010.  We are proud to be part of the Escalator East to Edinburgh showcase and grateful for the support of Arts Council England.
WOLF explores imaginatively the ecology, psychology and mythology of the human/wolf relationship, inviting us to meet ourselves as we travel with the pack.
WOLF is ensemble visual theatre that includes acoustic sound and new writing on themes simultaneously very contemporary and ancient.
It’s about our ears, all the better to hear you with.
And noses, all the better to smell you with.
And how we understand the pack, the loner, and our place on the planet.
