PATRICK COLE

Bullfighting

Date: 08 Apr 2016 – 24 Apr 2016
Type: Event, Exhibition

Frank ‘El Inglés’ Evans was a British-born bullfighter.
The son of a Salford butcher, he left the UK in 1964 for Spain.
He became a professional matador in 1966.

Bullfighting is an immersive, theatrical installation: open on weekends and punctuated by performances. The one-man show takes its starting point from the true story of Frank Evans, layered so densely with Cole’s own fiction that the truth becomes impossible to decipher.

This show uses storytelling to engage with a collective consciousness, as humour aids an investigation into the appropriation of borrowed culture.

Supported by Glasgow International.
