Lung Ha Kicks Off Its 40th Anniversary “Spotlight On…” Portrait Series

This week marks the launch of our Spotlight On… series, which will run throughout the rest of our 40th anniversary year and will showcase specially commissioned portraits of our Ensemble actors taken by photographer and long-time collaborator Peter Dibdin.

The photoshoot was a glamorous “Met Gala meets Night at the Theatre” extravaganza, during which our actors were given the opportunity to curate their own costumes and throw themselves into model poses and characterful performances, beautifully captured in this series and in our commemorative 40th anniversary Ensemble group photograph (above).

Along with these breathtaking portraits, our actors also share their answers to three intriguing questions:

1. What do you think is the most fabulous thing about being an actor?

2. If you could give an aspiring actor one piece of advice, what would it be?

3. 40 years is a big milestone during which we look back but also look ahead! What are your hopes or ambitions for the future? 

The photoshoot took place at the Traverse Theatre earlier this year, with costumes by Karen Tennent and hair and make-up by Catherine Christie. The series will be featured here on our website at the link below as well as on All Edinburgh Theatre, who will join us in publishing our actors’ stunning portraits and thoughtful answers throughout the year!
