Lewis Sherlock


Lewis Sherlock is a Physical Theatre Practitioner who works in Glasgow and Edinburgh. He has been involved in numerous productions, and regularly performs with Oceanallover, Dudendance and Surge (formerly Conflux), mainly through their Surge Festival. However over the past couple of years he has taken to making his own work which typically takes the form of short, sharp solo movement pieces suitable for Cabaret and performance nights.

Lewis recently toured a 1:1 show called Forgiveness from the Art(s) which by nature was an artist (and non-artist!) confessional booth. In addition to that he creates street theatre and outdoor performance.

“Chiefly, I have found exciting things occur at the meeting point of unique theatre forms: in response to this I aided Al Seed and Judith Milligan in setting up The Bouffon and Tragic Chorus Masterclasses and Choral Jam – a company originally concerned with exploring ensemble work – both of which are creating shows for 2017. This process of exploring the middle ground between two (and more) practices has happened predominately through collaborate and as such I cannot wait to see what myself and the other residency artists may create together!”
