FIONA TEMPLETON
August 2011

New York, NY – “ I have been working in theatre and poetry for over 30 years, and am director of the New York based performance group The Relationship. Like my own work, the company specializes in performance that is site-specific, that explores the relationship with the audience, and that takes on innovative approaches to language. Productions recently include: sections from my performance epic The Medead on Governor’s Island, New York Harbor and at Glasgow Tramway; L’Ile, a staging of the dreams of the people of Lille, France, in the places dreamed of; GOING (with Coming), a recreated 1970s piece by the Theatre of Mistakes, of which I was a core member.    
        \”I’ve published 12 books including YOU-The City (an intimate Manhattanwide play for an audience of one)(Roof Books), Cells of Release (Roof Books), Delirium of Interpretations (Green Integer), Elements of Performance Art. I received the 2003 theatre award from the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts, 3 NYFA fellowships in both performance and playwriting, and 2 from the NEA in both poetry and new genres. I was Senior Writer Fellow at Cambridge University 96-7. I teach at Brunel University, London.”
