/DOUBLE THRILLS: Mullet over/
BUZZCUT & ENGINE room
Mullet Over is a series of informal chats accompanying Double Thrills; our monthly programme of experimental performance and Live Art at the CCA. Come along early at 18:00 to listen to and chat with invited speakers whose work relates to the performance later that evening. During the break, join us in the bar to meet people and engage a little deeper in the work being presented in a chilled and welcoming environment.
Organised & hosted by Simon James Holton (PHD student at Glasgow University).
Presented with National Theatre of Scotland’s Engine Room.
Current Artist in Residence at National Theatre Scotland, Green is a performance maker based in Glasgow, Scotland. Concerned with the assimilation of form and content, Greens work is varied in style and method, with forms often ‘found’ through time-based, relational practices with people, place and material.
Green's work has received several awards, commissions and recognitions including a Herald Angel, ‘Best Production' Award at Dublin Fringe, The Adrian Howells Award for Intimate Performance, and a Total Theatre Award for 'Best Physical/Visual Theatre' at Edinburgh Fringe. She is the recipient of the Inaugural Forced Entertainment Award, in memory of Huw Chadbourn, (2018) and in the same year was one of four artists nominated for the ANTI Festival International Prize For Live Art.
Green also teaches Directing to Theatre Studies Undergraduates at Glasgow University and provides mentorship to Masters students in Theatre and Performance Practices. Her new work, Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative, will be presented Spring 2020.
Craig Manson is a performer and live artist whose work is centred on the commercialisation of Queer culture, specifically looking at how cis, gay men are heralded as the poster boys for the LGBTQIA+ community. He mainly works with dance, comedy and improvisation to make work that ranges from funny theatre shows to gentle performance actions. Currently he is an associate artist at Platform to develop 'Gayboys', a performance featuring Conner Milliken. He has performed extensively around the Queer club and cabaret scene in Glasgow, and presented work around the UK in association with Buzzcut, Take Me Somewhere, CCA, The Yard, Camden People's Theatre and The Arches.

Soojin Chang’s artistic practice is led by an inquiry into political and individual trauma, particularly the way these are internalised and inherited in the body schema. Her performance and video works are examinations of agency and fertility of both humans and nonhumans, deconstructing systems of oppression and power in order to rethink ecological destruction. She uses appropriation and subversion to challenge authorship and renegotiate representations, survival mechanisms, and immigration patterns of colonised cultures and diasporas. Selected exhibitions include MoMA PS1, New York; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow; Microscope Gallery, New York; and the Art/Life Institute, New York.
