Gold Piece

Dates & times to be confirmed.

one-on-one performance.

I recently came across the Japanese practice of Kintsugi – the art of repairing cracks in porcelain or crockery with gold. The idea behind the practice is that a new lease of life is given to the object through the repair, resulting in the object being more valuable and beautiful for having being broken in the first place.

This new one-on-one performance borrows the practice and ideology of Kintsugi as its core enquiry. Together, and over a practical exploration of this Japanese art, both artist and participant will explore how this transformative process can be applied to a human context and understanding.


Peter McMaster is an experimental performance practitioner based in Scotland and has been a practising artist of process-driven performance projects for five years. He has been commissioned by a number of venues and organisations across the UK including Live Art Development Agency, the former New Moves International, The Arches Glasgow, Battersea Arts Centre and National Theatre Scotland. His performance works move between solo performance, one-on-one experiences, collaborative and directed projects as well as working as a tutor on Contemporary Performance Practice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. His current practice is centred around notions of repair and healing, with his latest award winning, all male performance of Wuthering Heights attempting to address and disseminate the challenges of being men living in the modern world.
