Two great pieces in this amazing double bill:
Oog - Al Seed (Scotland)
The end of a war. A locked cellar. A beam of light.
Oog leads you deep into the fractured mind of a shell-shocked soldier. Utilising Guy Veale’s powerful soundtrack, this is an intensely physical and poetic exploration of the trauma of conflict and violence, and the psychological damage it inflicts.
It burns indelible images on the mind as it questions what happens when humans morph into something different, something less than human.
Made with support from Creative Scotland and The Arches / Produced by Feral.
“An experience that will leave no-one who sees it completely unchanged.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
Cabaret from the Shadows (UK)
Out in the hills live a group of misfits; existing amongst the shadows. Once in a while – when the moon is full – we allow them back to entertain us. For one night only, let devilry, illusion and mischief seize your heart and soul at the Cabaret From The Shadows, from an international ensemble of artists specialising in an electrifying blend of clowning and bouffon.
Supported by The Lantern Theatre, Merseyside Arts Foundation and INCA UK
