Nursery Crymes is a unique night-time experience exploring the dark themes behind children's rhymes and stories
An outdoor journey through Mother Goose's forest and beyond to encounter installations, performances, sound works, projections, film and some twisted versions of well-known fairytale characters.
Mischief La-Bas, aided and abetted by artists of all disciplines, explores the sinister side of nursery rhymes – the ideas of authority, morality and social indoctrination underpinning these simple stories for children. If the message is sung so sweetly, do we even notice the crime? Do we ever learn to question these early life lessons?
Nursery Crymes was premiered in Glasgow in November 2017 to critical acclaim and is available for touring.
