Harry Josephine Giles is from Orkney, Scotland, and is a writer and performer. They have lived on four islands, each larger than the last. They trained in Theatre Directing (MA, East 15 Acting School, 2010) and Sustainable Development (MA, University of St Andrews, 2009) and their work generally happens in the crunchy places where performance and politics get muddled up.
As a performer, Harry Josephine has toured their performance lecture This is not a riot toured to Italy in 2012, and their one-to-one show What We Owe has toured European festivals 2013-17, including in Slovenia, Latvia and Romania. What We Owe was listed in the Guardian’s “Best of the Edinburgh Fringe” 2014 round-up — in the “But is it art?” section. They also do vocals in the punk band Fit To Work. Their current show is Drone, a poetry, video and sound show about technology, gender and anxiety, and is part of the 2019 Made in Scotland showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe (and debuts in New Zealand at Verb Festival).
