Autumn's coming: New performance season announced

Posted on 21 Aug 2018 in News, Performance

After a bumper summer of sunshine, you might feel a little wistful as you put away your sunglasses and sandals. But if you are anything like us you will also be looking forward to the new season of theatre in Glasgow and beyond. Here at Tramway, we are excited to present a packed programme of performance including international, national and local artists and companies. This blog gives you a whistlestop overview of what's on.

In collaboration with Dance Umbrella, London's international dance festival, we bring two very special performances to Glasgow this October. China‚Äôs first independent dance company, Living Dance Studio, presents RED, exploring a renowened Cultural Revolution-era dance work, while Once Off Productions' Concert sees one of the leading figures in Irish contemporary dance take on the 'undanceable' music of composer Tommie Potts. 

Also in October, the immersive Puzzlecreature by Neon Dance puts audiences and dancers in the same space, in a piece inspired by art and architecture.

Platforming exciting new work by disabled artists, Tramway's Unlimited Festival (16 - 21 Oct) is a short but packed programme includes three performances. 111 is a duet which plays on the different strengths and vulnerabilities of dancers Eve Mutso and Joel Brown,  while Aby Watson's unapologetic 'ish' floruishes with, and thrives on, 'dys-function'. Award-winner Amy Rosa completes the trio with Gallanch, conveying the experince of living with Fibromyalgia.

In November we join Estonia Now (12-18 Nov), a festival of visual art, film and performance taking place across Glasgow to celebrate the country's centenary. We host an evening of Contemporary Dance -featuring three of the most innovative Estonian choreographers working today - followed by a triple bill from the Estonian National Ballet in their first ever visit to Scotland. 

All of this is preceded by the second music-and-dance collaboration from Scottish Ensemble and Andersson Dance following the international success of Goldberg Variations in ....

Special mention also goes to the Citizens Theatre whose co-production with the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Lyceum Theatre of Cyrano de Bergerac is their first show in their temporary Tramway home. See it from 1-22 September.
