Imaginary Magnitude: Rob Churm and Joe Howe

At Glasgow Project Room this Saturday was a performance. It was excellent. Cameos by favourites Lorna Macintyre and Gregor Wright.

Lanark at the Citz

Lanark

This production was fantastic in pretty much every way and made particularly moving by a discussion between Lanark and Alasdair Gray’s brain. Plus it was the Citizen’s s 70th birthday, so cake all round.

See more about the production here.

And EVERYONE should read Lanark – buy it here.

Read about and listen to Lanark here and here.

LUX Scotland’s AMIF The programme

If you’re in Glasgow, this seems essential this weekend:

Programme

#AMIF2015 examines the role of collective thinking and making. Presenting collaborative forms of production and research, this year’s festival considers what it means for a group to constitute a single body of work and, inversely, how one can speak on behalf of collective thought or action. It is programmed by collectives and collaborators with an explicit link to Glasgow, and co-organised by Tramway and LUX Scotland, with support from LUX.

Book now.
