The cartoons of the 2016 International Festival
Intrepid illustrator Graeme McNee did a stellar job at this year’s International Festival – getting to the heart of our shows and turning them into a series of beautiful cartoons.
He started off with a background look into our Standard Life Opening Event: Deep Time
Then he powered through two of our biggest dance shows with The Holy Body Tattoo and Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s monumental...
And Natalia’s Osipova’s terrific triple-bill Natalia Osipova and Guests.
Then Cherry Jones stole his heart in The Glass Menagerie...
And Alan Cumming blew Graeme away with his courage and creativity in Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.
Graeme was fascinated by Crystal Pite’s Emergence, which explored the complex emergent structures made by swarms of bees and flocks of birds...
Then he was transported by a delightful morning of music in the Queen’s Hall with Patricia Petibon and Susan Manoff.
Graeme followed that up with a rap around the ears from Lars Eidinger starring as Shakespeare’s ultimate villain in Richard III…
Then fell in with a bit of magic in James Thiérrée's mesmerising The Toad Knew.
Finally, Graeme came along to the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert and finished his International Festival cartoon adventures off with a bang!
