Current productions

Interiors

We watch a group of people coming together for a meal. They are in a room and the audience observes them through a window without hearing what they say, their story apparent through their physical behaviour. A microcosmic dance occurs behind the window. Utterly hypnotic Interiors is an award-winning production.

Available 2017 - 2019

Tabula Rasa

A new co-production from Vanishing Point and string orchestra Scottish Ensemble, incorporating the complete musical composition by Arvo Pärt, played live. This production explores the documented role of the composition in the lives of people experiencing their last days and the ultimately uplifting power of art in relation to all.

Available 2018 - 2019

Tomorrow

An acclaimed meditation on growing old, needing care and needing to care. It explores what it is to grow old and be cared for in a world where myth and spirituality have been subsumed by what we all know to be true – we are born, we live and we die.
