Peter Lannon is a Glasgow-based performer, director and facilitator. He works with people of all ages and abilities, and his practice ranges between theatre, live art, and dance. Pete is a Platform associate artist, and recently was a BBC Performing Arts Fund Theatre Fellow with Imaginate.
He makes performance for a range of audiences and contexts, including performances and participatory projects for (and with) young people, and work in community and criminal justice settings. He is also co-founder of KOR! Records, a new independent record label who create music projects for young people with additional support needs and release their output. Find out more about KOR here.
Much of Pete’s work is concerned with the investigation of contemporary masculinity and how it might be reimagined in performance. He believes strongly in the potential for art to empower people and for theatre in particular to provide a space in which social values and expectations become fluid and new possibilities can emerge.
Pete studied Contemporary Performance Practice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He has worked with a variety of artists and companies including the Edinburgh International Festival, Janice Parker Projects, Peter McMaster, Sarah Hopfinger, Fish & Game, Lyra Theatre, Youth Theatre Arts Scotland, Macrobert, Firefly Arts and Imaginate.
