There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten,
that was filled with all the things that no one wanted…
As part of The Tin Forest, an international arts project created by the National Theatre of Scotland and part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, people across Glasgow, Scotland and the Commonwealth are being invited to illuminate and bring back to life a local forgotten space at the official transition from Winter to Spring on Thursday 20th March 2014.
Inspired by the book by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson
Led by Graham McLaren and Simon Sharkey
Produced in association with Scottish Youth Theatre and supported by Glasgow Life, Creative Scotland, Homecoming 2014 and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
As Glasgow prepares to welcome the world in 2014, The Tin Forest invites the people of Glasgow to retell the city’s story, to reimagine its future and to take part in the reinvention of the iconic South Rotunda into a remarkable performance space for theatre-makers and artists from all over the Commonwealth.
As part of Festival 2014, the Commonwealth Games-time Glasgow based strand of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, The Tin Forest at the South Rotunda will play host to an immersive puppet experience, a large scale visual art installation, live music and an international theatre festival featuring companies from Scotland, England, Jamaica, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Malta and India.
