In just over a month, Patrick will be heading to Glasgow to start rehearsals on Perch
, the large scale outdoor performance we are creating with Conflux
and Lume Teatro
for the cultural program of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. In the two years of planning and development for this production, artists from Australia, Scotland and Brazil have worked together in each other’s countries and via many late night Skype sessions to prepare for what is being described as a “carnival of flying and falling”.
Also working with us on the project are the final year Design students at NIDA. They have created a series of beautifully eccentric paper cut animations that will be projected on the buildings we are performing on and around. Involving over 200 artists, musicians and crew, Perch premieres in Glasgow’s fabulously named Rottenrow Gardens on July 19 with a second performance the following night. If you’re going to be in Glasgow, let us know and we’ll make sure you can join in the fun.
