About Kandinsky

In 2005, We formed Kandinsky to develop and produce plays that bridge the gap between art and science. The first play, "Chalk", was performed in February 2005 by the Edinburgh University Theatre Company at the Bedlam Theatre, Edinburgh.

Our second play, "Enola", was developed and performed for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2005, where it was staged for three weeks at the Smirnoff Baby Belly. It received high critical acclaim, and in November 2005, had a subsequent run at The Arches Theatre, Glasgow. In April 2006, Enola was officially selected for the National Student Drama Festival, where it won the Fest-Goers Award for best show, as well as a Commendation for Ellie Bruce's performance as Enola, and the Sunday Times Playwriting Award for Al Smith. In July 2006, the play transferred to the New Wimbledon Theatre.

In August 2006, we headed back to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with "Radio", a play about the birth manned space flight. For more information about the play, please click here.

In October 2006, "Radio" transferred to London's Soho Theatre for a limited run. In April 2007, it appeared at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough as a part of the National Student Drama Festival, where it won Best Play, both the Best Actor and the inaugural Timothy West Actors Award for Tom Ferguson, Best Lighting for Neil Hobbs, a Commendation for Direction for James Yeatman, and a second Sunday Times Playwriting Award for Al Smith. In June 2007, the play transferred to the 59E59 Theater in New York City as a part of the Brits off Broadway season.

For the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Kandinsky presented "On Wonderland" by Gavin O'Carroll. Starring Kerry-Jayne Wilson, the play ran for three weeks at the Smirnoff Baby Belly. In June 2009, the play will transfer to Hoxton Hall, London. For further information, please click here.

In 2008, Kandinsky returned to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with two brave, dark new plays about coming of age in modern Britain. The plays were a sell-out success and were shortlisted for the Carol Tambor Award. More information about "The Bird" by Al Smith, and "The Bee" by Matt Hartley, can be found here.

IIn 2010 Kandinsky created Limehouse Nights, a play inspired by the history of Chinese immigration to London's East End in the early twentieth century. Limehouse Nights was performed in the old Limehouse Town Hall.

To learn more about the plays, please choose from the following: "Chalk", "Enola", "Radio", "On Wonderland", "The Bird", "The Bee", or "Limehouse Nights".
