Adrian Howells is a performance artist with an interest in creating work that promotes intimacy and genuine exchange with an audience, often in a one-to-one, autobiographical or confessional context, in a range of non-traditional performance spaces. Between 2006 and 2009, Adrian was the recipient of an AHRC Creative Fellowship in the Department of Theatre, Film and TV Studies at Glasgow University, where his practice-led research was engaged with looking at issues of intimacy and risk in the one-to-one confessional performance practice. He is currently Artist-in-Residence at The Arches in Glasgow. Adrian has been a performance artist for over twenty years and has worked with the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow, as well as presenting work at the Drill Hall and BAC in London. In 2009 he won a Total Theatre Award for his one-on-one performance Foot Washing for the Sole at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which has since toured nationally and internationally.
