PHYSICALITY/RHYTHM/MUSICALITY Gordon Wilson has been working as an actor and ‘maker’ for about 40 years - in classical theatre, music theatre, children’s theatre, dance, opera, circus, but also for much of that time in the world of street arts. With a whole series of small-scale productions he played in an unimaginable variety of places for all kinds of people all over Europe and beyond. Whilst accepting that performing in the public space is not necessarily everyone’s priority, he perceives it as a context in which, as an actor, dancer or musician, one can only become stronger, more open and more versatile. Seeking the challenge but also inspiration the public space has been an enriching environment ever since, requiring a curiosity, generosity, and adaptability.
