“One of the highlights of our festival…..months later people still tell me how it has stayed with them.” Eleanor Livingstone, Director StAnza International Poetry Festival
In his new stage production Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine, award-winning performer and poet Martin Figura asks: Is there a mathematical equation for love and the behaviour of a beating heart? What can be retrieved from life’s catastrophes and wounds? When our windshield is blurred with rain and we’re wearing our reading glasses, can we learn to look in the rear-view mirror and smile?
Martin Figura is a poet, a portrait and social documentary photographer, a qualified accountant and retired army major. His latest one-person show Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine is an autobiographical performance of love, loss and rolling with the punches, and was shortlisted for the 2018 Saboteur Awards (Best Spoken Word Show).
Martin Figura is touring his one-person show Doctor Zeeman's Catastrophe Machine with producer Tilt in 2018 and 2019, more info here.
