Struan has been creating movement-based theatre and performance for more than 30 years in over 300 productions as well as teaching and training at the highest level. This includes plays from ancient, early modern and contemporary periods, circus, oratorios, operas as well as his own devised productions and dance works.

He was the founding Head of Movement at The Royal Shakespeare Company from 2008-2013, creating movement and choreography and supporting on over 100 productions.

Whether as the leading, conceiving artist on a project or as part of a team creating work, Struan’s work is identified by its ‘trans-disciplinary’ and collaborative nature. There is also, through all areas of his work, a common thread in the principles of choric and ensemble work.  More...
