The ReAuthoring Project emerged from a collaboration between cultural producers Nimble Fish and author Katherine May in 2009. Working together, they devised a performance of Katherine’s novel, Burning Out.

The ongoing project now exists to further develop this devising process, and to work with a wider range of authors and community groups to create literary performance that is engrossing, democratic and enlightening, without losing sight of the essential nature of the book and the author.

The ReAuthoring Project seeks to reinvigorate the reader’s encounter with the author, moving away from the traditional reading, towards something with more appeal to new audiences. We work within a wide range of media to achieve this.

The ReAuthoring Project is led by Samantha Holdsworth and Greg Klerkx, who work with an ever-expanding universe of writer/artist collaborators.
