Vanishing Point Theatre & National Theatre of Scotland
The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler is a musical and visual journey through the life of one of Scotland’s most iconic exiles.
Weaving together the music, prose, poetry and biography of Ivor Cutler, The Beautiful Cosmos tells the remarkable story of a life, from birth, through boyhood, to old age and death. A true maverick, Ivor Cutler was the only artist to have been played on BBC Radio 1,2,3 and 4. He was signed by all the major record labels, influenced the Beatles and was championed by John Peel.
The Beautiful Cosmos celebrates the work of one of Scotland’s unique artists in a production by the ever-inventive Vanishing Point in collaboration with the National Theatre of Scotland.
