Joel Mason was born in Orangeburg, South Carolina in 1960. After a tour of duty in the US Navy, spent in South East Asia, he returned home and studied acting at the University of South Carolina but didn’t finish his BFA until eight years later at the University of Rhode Island. Joel moved around the US for several years as an actor, dancer and theatrical fight choreographer before starting his graduate studies in Interdisciplinary Theater at Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland.He came to Edinburgh in 2003 as a performer with Squonk Opera, met his wife while dancing Argentine tango and moved to Scotland permanently in 2004 where he has had success as a playwright and director. Joel lives in Dalgety Bay, Fife with his wife and son.
To me the term “artist” once referred to a level of self-expression. Now I recognise it as an office of public service that requires an extreme level of responsibility. As artists we are the creators of modern mythology.
