What is theatre? I’m sure the answer is different for everyone. Whether it’s therapeutic, a means of entertainment, escapism, or a tool to addressing social and political ills, a hobby, a passion… we’ve all had an experience of theatre in some form or other. Edinburgh International Festival is set to liven up the historic city of Edinburgh with an array of performances and exhibitions from some of the world’s exciting creative talents. What better way to learn about the inspirations and motivations of performers and creatives than to listen to their thoughts via Festival Portraits. Introducing Founder and Artistic Director of Théâtre de Complicité, Simon McBurney, OBE
