About InVisible Lines

A mid-life mystery cycle

Conceived, written and performed by Kath Burlinson
Live Music by Christine Sparks
Artistic Direction by Paul Oertel and Nancy Spanier
Sound & Music Production: John Sparks

InVisible Lines is an intimate, daring odyssey that uses the human body as a canvas to explore ageing, loss, life-cycles, seasonality, death and defiance.

Through word, movement, song and visual imagery, InVisible Lines investigates what existence feels like when more of life has passed than is likely to lie ahead. It is tender, wild, joyous and ruthlessly honest.

Kath Burlinson founded the Authentic Artist Collective and is a theatremaker specialising in devised work. Recent directing/co-devising credits include Mairi Campbell’s Pulse and Auld Lang Syne (Made in Scotland showcases 2016/2018), The Old House (RADA Festival, Camden Fringe 2018), Stolen Voices (Tête à Tête, Arcola, Grimeborn), Hallaig by Iain Finlay Macleod (Robhanis Theatre, Tron & Highlands Tour, 2016-2017).

Musician and songwriter Christine Sparks writes and performs original material and is an accomplished arranger, including on her album, Robin: The Robert Burns Collection, Vol. 1. She composes and underscores for theatre and is leading the choir at the Glasgow Women’s Library. She has had a 35-year career as a professional singer including the Sensational Christine Sparks cabaret show.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for InVisible Lines are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
