Peter McMaster (he/him) is an experimental performance artist, collaborator, facilitator/educator, father, ex-dog owner, current boat owner, lover of the underdog and fan of the amateur/less noticed practices. Works under his directorship span award-winning ensemble touring theatre works, long standing home village professional art group facilitation, solo and intimate performance practices, sited and community sensitive projects, artist to artist mentoring, consultation and long-standing collaborations with artists such as Hanna Tuulikki and Louise Ahl/Ultimate Dancer.
Peter is a member of the Take Me Somewhere Artist Constellation and has shown his work extensively nationally and internationally. Current works include The Village Artist, a long term professional art project for and with the small village of Bowling, West Dumbartonshire where he lives, Elephant a new solo performance for film in collaboration with artist Tim Etchells and Chaill/Lost a sited work on one of Scotland’s most remote and once inhabited Gaelic islands. Threaded through each facet of his practice is a tacit investigation of contemporary male-nesses and an attempt to hold, love, destabilise and understand this complex gender territory.
Peter McMaster is an artist participating in LIFT’s Concept Touring commissioning programme.
