Dear Europe – National Theatre of Scotland/SWG3

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.
