Untitled Projects has produced four ambitious and distinctive pieces of theatre in Scotland over the past twelve years. The company has recently received recognition for their exceptional vision with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Breakthrough Fund. Primarily, this is to raise the profile of the company, and create a stable environment for the work to be developed continuously, allowing future productions to have a longer life and be seen further afield in the UK and mainland Europe.
Stewart Laing formed Untitled Projects in 1998. Each project is driven by a personal aesthetic vision that attempts to re-configure the conventions of theatrical space. Each project is imagined individually and a different approach is taken to each, with a specific group of freelance practitioners every time.
While each project may differ radically from the last, the underlying approach to the work of Untitled Projects shares a common aesthetic language with contemporary European companies, rather than with traditional UK touring theatre convention.
