The collective's manifesto includes the commitment "to break down walls surrounding the mysterious timescale between graduation and a sustained professional career, that can often seem like an endless cloudy abyss we are all walking through - together, but alone."
Founded by Rosie Roberts, Frances Lightbound and Kirsty Macleod, the collective already has another dozen member artists who will be showing and selling work over the opening weekend, closing on Sunday September 8 at 5pm. Accessibility and a critical commitment to making and showing contemporary works are at the heart of the collective's ethos, the manifesto promises. Friday's opening will be followed by a Poetry Club night with Guest DJs.
CHOREOGRAPHER Natasha Gilmore's Barrowland Ballet company is out on the road from Friday September 13 with two versions of the one story, Tiger Tale for primary age children, and Tiger for the rest of us.
Writer Robert Alan Evans and composer Kim Moore have collaborate with Gilmore on the twin incarnations of a story that has a family's somewhat unhappy life turned upside down my the arrival of a tiger in their home. Most venues on the Scottish tour, which ends at Glasgow Tramway on October 25 and 26, are offering afternoon shows for younger people before an evening performance of the adult version.
