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...

Twenty First Century Chorus International Creative Residency:  July 16 - August 5 2019

Struan is bringing together a number of long term collaborators as part of the ongoing Twenty First Century Chorus research and development programme. 

During this time the collaborators will explore new ideas for the creation of solos shows and the impact and nature of embodied creative practice. 

This work follows on from similar residencies supported by Glasgow Life and the Albany, Deptford and brings together members of the team who co-created "My
Case is Altered".  The creation of MCIA was supported by the Universities of Illinois Urban-Champaign,  Willamette and Christopher Newport in USA and Goldsmiths, University of London, who continue their support on this project.
