Artist in Residence Event 

Artist in Residence Event 

Monday 9 May 2022

Craig Suite, Sir Duncan Rice Library, Bedford Road, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, AB24 3AA 10.30am – 12.30pm 

Andy Cannon is a writer, performer and professional storyteller based in Scotland. 

Join us to celebrate his Artist in Residence with the University of Aberdeen’s Museums and Special Collections Department with a performance of Is This a Dagger? Andy’s re-telling of Shakespeare’s infamous classic, Macbeth

Through his residency Andy has been researching the battle of Mons Graupius, a celebrated encounter between the Caledonians and the might of the Roman Empire, for a new show – The Last People on Earth. This show will tell the story of Mons Graupius and will bring together storytelling, original music and the latest archaeological discoveries to try and unearth a fragment of truth about a day nearly 2000 years ago that – arguably – shaped a nation.

This event is also an opportunity to learn more about The Last People on Earth, what Andy has discovered during his time with the Museums and Special Collections Department and feed into the research for the show. 

This event is free and open to all.
