This book contextualizes, documents and analyses the performance and theatre work of Lone Twin – Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters - a duo who, for the past decade, have been recognised internationally as one of the UK's most inventive and engaging performance collaborations. By adopting a number of different theoretical and interdisciplinary perspectives, the internationally respected team of scholars and artists assembled in this volume aim to engage creatively and critically with Lone Twin's divergent themes and diverse modes of practice. Divided into four themed sections, the book explores Lone Twin's interest in live performance, journeys, places, walking, encounters with other people, language and narrative. Each section includes original interviews and essays, performance texts and photographs from the company, and has been designed to enable readers to navigate their way through the book on their own terms. In this way, the publication locates Lone Twin within a contemporary landscape of experimental performance making, and seeks to pay homage, in a deliberately playful manner, to the participatory and optimistic energies that characterise Whelan's and Winters' creative work.
