Farewell Bowie

Performance Space Director Fiona Winning farewells production manager and lighting designer Ian Bowie.

Ian Bowie was a drummer, a sound engineer, a lighting designer, a production manager, a constructionist, a mentor to many and a wonderful man. He worked with Performance Space and our peer companies over many years contributing enormously to contemporary practice in Sydney. He was an avid recycler with a creative, practical solution to almost anything. He always offered a hand, a piece of equipment or some time to a colleague trying to get a work up on the smell of an oily rag or to a fellow techie in a tight spot. He liked shows with politics, people with guts and great music. Sadly, Ian died on Thursday October 13. We will miss his generosity, his smokey laugh, his can-do attitude, his snake lights and his rock’n’roll stories.

Fiona Winning
