Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters have been working together as Lone Twin since 1997 and secured an international reputation with a string of theatre, gallery and plein-air events. Key projects include the ambitious six-year series The Days of the Sledgehammer Have Gone; Lone Twin Theatre which produced The Catastrophe Trilogy - a triptych of theatre performances which toured internationally between 2006 and 2013; public projects such as Speeches and Street Dance; and live experiences for young people including Cabaret Simon and Beastie.
In 2010 Lone Twin embarked upon The Boat Project, a prestigious commission for the London 2012 Festival and Cultural Olympiad. The project engaged many thousands of people in the collective building of boat and made headlines around the world.
In 2015 Winters and Whelan returned to the stage with a raucous re-imagining of Sam Shepard’s True West, a cousin of sorts to the now legendary Ghost Dance, the company’s 12-hour line dance performance.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2017 Whelan and Winters developed an exhilarating new performance – Last Act of Rebellion – made in collaboration with a host of theatre makers including Richard Maxwell (New York City Players), Tim Etchells (Forced Entertainment), Gob Squad, Bryan Saner (Goat Island) and Hetain Patel.
