Zinnie Harris brought three productions to the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival: Oresteia: This Restless House, Rhinoceros and Meet Me at Dawn.

The International Festival Portraits are a series of interviews with actors, choreographers, musicians, conductors, writers and directors talking about the art that they love.

The 2017 International Festival Portraits feature Alan Ayckbourn, Anoushka Shankar, Joshua Bell, Martin Creed, Mitsuko Uchida and Zinnie Harris in a series of personal reflections on their art-form, the nature of live performance, and the unique connection they experience with an audience every time they take to the stage.
