Stewart Laing is a theatre director and designer based in Glasgow. Laing is artistic director of the Glasgow-based company Untitled Projects. Untitled Projects continually re-imagine what theatre can be: blending landscape, biography, novel, video, lecture, documentary, installation, interview, fashion, music, science and playwriting. The company is interested in contemplating the future and works with academics and scientists to imagine how our current obsessions as a society might eventually play out. The company explores cultural history, reinventing its source material in the process. The audience is always at the centre of the work and is often to be seen as an involved presence in the projects.
