Cast & Creatives
Candice Edmunds graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with a BA (Acting) in 2002. In 2003 she founded the award-winning Vox Motus with Jamie Harrison. Their aim was to create innovative, visual contemporary theatre that would appeal to their non arts-based peers.
For Vox Motus Candice has co created and directed Flight, Dragon, The Infamous Brothers Davenport, Slick, The Not-So-Fatal Death of Grandpa Fredo, Bright Black and How to Steal a Diamond.
Their productions have toured the UK, USA, Australia, Middle East, Germany and China. They have been nominated for and won numerous awards, including a Herald Angel for Flight and the UK Theatre Award for Best Production for Children and Young People for Dragon.
Candice also works as a director and dramaturge for theatre and dance. Credits include Carmen (Oper Wuppertal), her critically acclaimed adaptation Dance of Death in association with The Citizens’ Theatre Glasgow and the world premiere of Yuri Klavdiev’s Thoughts Spoken Aloud from Above.
For Barrowland Ballet Candice has worked as dramaturge on Whiteout, Wolves, The River (for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Cultural Program) and A Conversation With Carmel.
Candice has taken part in cultural networking and exchanges around the world as both a representative of Vox Motus and of Scottish theatre and has been a mentor on the Federation of Scottish Theatres’ Step Up program. She has delivered master-classes and practice-based talks to universities, conservatoires, colleges and national organisations and agencies.
