Wild Rose goes on general release on 12th April and features BAA’s Natali McCleary and David McGowan.
Rose-Lynn Harlan is bursting with raw talent, charisma and cheek. Fresh out of jail and with two young kids, all she wants is to get out of Glasgow and make it as a country singer. Her mum Marion has had a bellyful of Rose-Lynn’s Nashville nonsense. Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house.
Wild Rose is a comedy-drama about mothers and daughters, dreams and reality and three chords and the truth.

Challenged by the National Theatre of Scotland to explore their relationship with Europe, some of Scotland’s most adventurous artists and theatre makers will present their powerful, playful and provocative responses in Dear Europe – one night only at Glasgow’s SWG3.
In moving through shadows, Nima Séne and Daniel Hughes will create a filmed piece exploring the experience of people of colour in present-day Poland alongside that of the Polish community in Scotland. Working with Polish/Nigerian singer Ifi Ude and theatre-maker Adura Onashile, a BAA client, the film will be inspired by the civil rights “red experience” in Soviet-era Poland.
Cadaver Police In Quest Of Aquatraz Exit, created by Alan McKendrick with Jules Buchholtz (dramaturg) will be performed by a cast including BAA’s Natali McCleary. The narrative follows the fortunes of the band Cadaver Police as they become the first international export out of a blockaded country after decades of total embargo. Marieluise Fleißer, Hito Steyerl, 2000AD magazine and contemporary octopus consciousness all provide suitable inspiration. Featuring live music from Glasgow avant-psych instrumentalists, Smack Wizards.
Dear Europe is presented by National Theatre of Scotland and will be performed at Galvanizers, SWG3, Glasgow on 29th March 2019.

A music and theatre spectacle, The Dark Carnival features sixteen performers and musicians, including BAA’s Natali McCleary, Ramesh Meyyappan, and Harry Ward.
The show tells the story of newcomers to the afterlife who discover that death is not actually the end. Incredulous at their continuity, they form their own necropolitan community where every night is party night: songs get sung, love gets made and whisky flows.
Created and performed by Vanishing Point and A New International, The Dark Carnival will transport audiences into an unexpected vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers, half-hearted ghosts, and songs.
The Dark Carnival will be presented at Tramway whilst the Citizens Theatre building undergoes an exciting two year redevelopment.
Runs from 19 February to 2 March
