Biography

Graham Eatough is one of Scotland’s leading artists working in theatre, visual art and film. He was Artistic Director of Suspect Culture theatre company from 1996 to 2009 establishing the company as one of the UK’s most innovative groups presenting new work around the world. Since 2007 Graham has worked extensively within the visual arts exploring an interdisciplinary approach to theatricality and performance in collaboration with leading artists such as Graham Fagen, Simon Starling and Stephen Sutcliffe. In theatre, Graham has worked extensively with the National Theatre of Scotland over recent years writing and directing How To Act, a contemporary Greek tragedy set in a theatre masterclass, and creating an adaptation of Naoki Higashida’s book about autism, The Reason I Jump, staged in a specially designed outdoor maze in Glasgow’s West End. In 2015 he directed Lanark: A Life in Three Acts for Edinburgh International Festival and Citizens Theatre which he created with long-time collaborator, the writer David Greig.

Graham’s work has been presented in prestigious venues and festivals throughout the UK and internationally including, most recently, Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, Manchester International Festival, Ruhrtriennale, Sydney Harbour and La Friche gallery Marseille. He has won a number of awards including, Herald Angel Award 2015, The Contemporary Arts Society Prize 2016 with Stephen Sutcliffe, Critics Award for Theatre in Scotland 2016 and a Scotsman Fringe First 2017.
