Barrowland Ballet presents an evening of contemporary dance giving voice to Glasgow’s Southside. Featuring a live performance of Monument, the latest work from intergenerational company Wolf Pack, and dance-films Hoods Off, Frames and The Tea Party created in collaboration with St Albert’s Primary School, Pollokshields. 

This programme will also take place at Tramway from 3pm on Sunday 6 November

Monument explores the numerous environmental and political issues concerning us all today, delving into the themes of connectivity, human equality and power. Inspired by Kurt Jooss’s “The Green Table” depicting politicians arguing over power while the ice is melting, Monument explores the contradiction between political power and sincerity in people. Created and performed by Wolf Pack, Barrowland Ballet’s Intergenerational Company working in collaboration with Aya Kobayashi.

Hoods Off was created in collaboration with pupils from St Albert’s Primary School, Glasgow. This powerful film describes moments in the lives of young people where they have been judged for what they are, not who they are.

Frames was created in collaboration with young people with complex needs from Isobel Mair and St Albert’s Primary School. It celebrates our connection with the natural environment, and each other.

The Tea Party is a comical piece created with pupils from St Albert’s Primary School, inspired by Barrowland Ballet’s Film Loose Leaf Tea. Supported by Creative Scotland.
