Spotlight On... Theatre Modo

Feature by no author please | 16 May 2006
What: Theatre company
When: Since 1996
Where: Based in Glasgow
Why: Theatre Modo is a small treasure. A combination of stringent production values, creative updates on classic works, fully integrated musical performance and a fucking cool design style mean each of their plays is hugely original, but never so obscure as to alienate audiences. The formula has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations – 'Ubu' was performed more than 50 times throughout Scotland and Europe before finally closing in autumn 2005. They've won a number of awards including a Fringe First, and they are committed to education, taking workshops and productions to schools around the country.
Essentials: 'The Last Supper of Doctor Faustus', which included a four-course meal for the audience; 'Ubu', a reworking of Alfred Jarry's classic featuring grotesque clowning which is set to tour again in 2006.
Next up: 'Don Quixote' premieres at the Citizens Theatre on 2 May.
