Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir
Gudrun is an Icelandic performance maker and director based in Glasgow. Gudrun creates autobiographical work, questioning authenticity, the rehearsed live moment and ideas around theatrical deconstruction. She makes performances that use humour and seriousness in equal measure to interrogate and investigate complex human experiences; often working with bodies and spaces in unexpected ways. Gudrun has a particular interest in the social value of art and through her practice devises and creates live performances with young people across many different contexts, where she makes work to a professional standard with non- professional performers – often challenging the expectations of theatre by young people. She has a passion for work that engages and benefits young people as well as communities and delivers projects that encourage collaborative environments. She received Artsadmin’s BANNER Award in 16/17 and has performed her work at multiple venues and festivals across the UK and internationally.
Gudrun reimagined her solo work Elision from her living room in lockdown for Gateshead International Festival of Theatre. She is currently developing new solo-work, working on new collaborations with young people and directing Polmont Youth Theatre, the first youth theatre in a prison in Scotland.
