Catriona MacLeod

Cat is a writer and director from the Isle of Mull currently working across theatre and film. Most recently, she was appointed Associate Director with international theatre company Vanishing Point, co-founded actors' workshop Gaun Yersel' and produces _ and friends, a new performance night with a different guest curator for each event.

Cecilia Thoden van Velzen

Cecilia is a theatre maker and writer from the Netherlands. She came to Scotland to study at the Royal Conservatoire after finishing her directing degree at Toneelacademie Maastricht and was so charmed by Scotland’s cultural scene that she continued to make her art here.

In her work, Cecilia likes to build theatrical machines that evoke a sense of wonder and purpose through sound. She’s focused on the musicality of story and approaches performance like she would composition. She loves the absurd, the puzzle, the unseen, and the underdog.

Eleanor holds her MFA in Theatre Directing from Birkbeck University and was resident assistant director at the Citizens Theatre for their 22/23 season. She is currently developing a series of plays based on women in myth, and is passionate about developing new work.

Assisting credits include The Comedy of Errors, Moonset, and Maud’s Map (Citizens Theatre), and Alföld (Play, Pie, & a Pint).
