“The brothers Grimm, indefatigable collectors of folklore and myth, defining the word ‘Heimlich’ in their own Deutches Worterbuch, traced the idea of the homely, that which belongs to the house and home, a sentiment of security and freedom from fear, as it gradually took on the ominous dimensions of it’s apparent opposite, the unhomely.” In The Architectural Uncanny: Essays in the Modern Unhomely. Cambridge: The MIT Press, 1992.

Saturday Night Vanishing Point is delighted to be collaborating for the first time with Teatro Nacional São João (Porto), Centro Cultural Vila Flor - Teatro Oficina (Guimarães) and São Luiz Teatro Municipal (Lisbon), and to be working again with Tramway (Glasgow), following our recent collaboration on the revival of Interiors. Tramway has, of course, played a vital part in the development of Vanishing Point, supporting us as a young company, giving us an environment in which to explore our ideas and a platform to present our work. As a young company we were influenced by some of the famous artists who came to Tramway and by methods of making work that could be described as ‘European’. We also harboured a strong ambition to work internationally. It is therefore a great pleasure to be able to create this piece of work with an international company, on an international scale and with the crucial support of Tramway. Saturday Night brings together a cast from Belgium, France, Portugal and Scotland. Some of the performers had previously worked with Matthew Lenton on the 2010 École des Maîtres, which took place in Udine, Naples, Brussels, Reims and Lisbon. (The École des Maîtres is an international itinerant course specialising in drama for young professional actors from Belgium, France, Portugal and Italy. Directors previously associated with the project include Jerzy Grotowski, Peter Stein, Jan Fabre, Pipo Delbono and Antonio Latella). In many respects Saturday Night is a companion piece to our earlier show, Interiors. It develops a number of fascinations; the method of working behind glass, of observing human behaviour from a distance, the idea that physical movement and pictures, together with music, might enable us and the audience to approach a piece of theatre a bit more like a piece of dance, without it necessarily being dance. In May 2011 Vanishing Point was invited to workshop ideas at Teatro Nacional São João. We spent a few weeks in Porto exploring possibilities for a new show that would open there later that year. The core ideas for Saturday Night emerged during this time. We set out not to repeat the formula of Interiors. We wanted to delve deeper and push the form further, test its possibilities and take risks. We wanted to add some things and take others away: Rooms, voices, real time - the window started to work more like a ‘panoramic lens’ rather than the ‘zoom lens’ of Interiors, we wanted to create a series of events upon which an audience would be encouraged to dream its own dreams. In fact, this idea has been central to the development of Saturday Night. From very early on in the process, we were interested in how the role

of the viewer might in some ways be similar to that of the observer of a photograph. In this way, Saturday Night takes inspiration from photography, particularly the work of Gregory Crewdson. When we look at a photograph, for example, we often read deeply into a single image, imagining the story the photograph tells. We bring our imagination to bear on the photograph. Who are the protagonists? What are they doing there? Is the relationship between them friendly or dangerous? There is a mystery that we have to solve but there is no one meaning, no ‘answer’. If words are applied to those pictures, the component parts of the image and their relationship to each other become less significant, less heightened. No longer are we being asked to read our own meaning into a picture so the picture becomes less important. We wanted Saturday Night to work something like one of these photographs, a moving picture, a bit like dance.

About Vanishing Point

Space 11

Vanishing Point is a multi award-winning theatre company based in Glasgow, Scotland. Since 1999 the company has created new theatre for modern audiences. The company has an international perspective and collaborates with leading artists from around the world.

Vanishing Point is committed to supporting and nurturing emerging talent. Between 2004 – 2011, Vanishing Point provided support through Space 11, a capacity building project for emerging artists, theatre and dance companies. Artists that have received support through Space 11 include Vox Motus, David Leddy/Fire Exit Ltd, Random Accomplice, Company Chordelia, Pamela Carter/ek Performance and Glas(s) Performance.

Following the international success of Interiors in Paris, Rome, Naples, Modena and – next year – in Brussels and South America, Saturday Night marks a crucial step in the development of Vanishing Point. It forms part of a programme that aims to develop and widen the scope of artistic creation through international collaboration, a programme that continues next year with Alice’s Wonderland, another co-production, which will premiere at one of Europe’s leading theatre festivals. We are pleased to be involved in major co-productions with leading European theatres, collaborating with artists from these countries and working in a way that challenges language barriers. Yet we are also committed to supporting the emergence of other artists through Space 11. We are pleased to be working in a way that nurtures curation, commissioning, partnership and collaboration and moves away from the ‘turn up then leave’ scenario that often goes hand in hand with ‘touring’. We are also proud to carry the associations of Tramway, Glasgow and Scotland with us wherever we go.

Previous shows include Lost Ones (performed across the UK and at the National Theatres of Kosovo and Macedonia), Subway (a co-production with the Lyric Hammersmith, London and the National Theatre of Kosovo, in collaboration with a group of Kosovan musicians), Little Otik (a co-production with the National Theatre of Scotland, adapted from the film by Jan Svankmajer), The Beggar’s Opera (a co-production with The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh and Belgrade Theatre, Coventry), which re-imagined John Gay’s play as a rock opera and Interiors (a co-production with Napoli Teatro Festival Italia and the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh) which continues to tour internationally. Our work has been seen across the UK and in Kosovo, Macedonia, Sri Lanka, France, Corsica, Italy, Georgia and Portugal.

Our work begins with a curiosity – an idea or a story we are interested in diving into. We like the ordinary to become extraordinary and the extraordinary to become ordinary, creating a reality like our own but different – dreamlike, dark, mysterious and beautiful. In these dream worlds, there are echoes of our own existence, our own conflicts and battles, but there are no answers. We are interested in how action, rather than words, tells stories, combining performance, music and video to create visual, evocative and impressionistic theatre.

Vanishing Point is currently developing Space 11 – further details will be announced soon.

Open Workshops Throughout the year Vanishing Point hold open workshops. These workshops give us the opportunity to work with new artists, make new connections for future projects and broaden our theatrical vocabulary. They also give artists the opportunity to work with us and learn more about our collaborative creative process. Details of forthcoming workshops will be announced on our website. www.vanishing-point.org

Perhaps it is more than coincidence that Sigmund Freud and Edwin Hubble shared the same moment in history, Freud exposing the rational mind as a tiny clearing in the dark forest of the soul, Hubble revealing that our galaxy is only one among billions, that the heavens are immense beyond imagination. To gaze into the night sky and feel the vastness and passion of creation is to glimpse an equally vast interior. Wyn Wachhprst, In The Dream of Spaceflight: Essays on the Near Edge of Infinity.
