The Red Chair

- 23 — 25 April 2015
- 26 April 2015 3-4:30pm
This unique one-woman show is told in a rich and saucy Scots dialect with physical verve, a wee dram of whisky to oil the way and a musical score that rolls in like mist over the hills. The Red Chair lies somewhere between a Grimm’s Tale, an absurdist ghost story and a parent’s guide on how not to bring up children.
- 30 April — 1 May 2015
Four performers playing at superheroes are caught in a series of conflicts which are both personal, and intricately political. Spiced with comic book and action hero references, their epic adventure unfolds through action-packed choreography and projected illustrations, as they question what a superhero might look like in today’s complex and troubled world?
