National Theatre of Scotland in association with SWG3

Dear Europe

Curated By Jackie Wylie and Stewart Laing

Come together at SWG3 as diverse performances, food, film and music play us out of our old relationship with the European Union.

Challenged to explore their relationship with Europe, some of Scotland’s most adventurous artists and theatre makers will presentpowerful, playful and provocative responses, signalling the end of an era.

National Theatre of Scotland invites you to join the party, the wake, the last blowout to mark this historic date.

One Night, Many Voices Daniel Hughes and Nima Séne will take found footage and archive film to create a piece inspired by the civil rights “red experience” in Soviet-era Poland, reflecting on contemporary experiences of people of colour in present day Poland and the Polish community in Scotland.

Angus Farquar’s Second Citizen will see him writing to the heads of every European Member State asking to be fully legally adopted as a new citizen; not on the basis of wealth, but what can be offered through long term artistic exchange with Scotland

Alan McKendrick takes inspiration from German artist Jules Buchholtz to develop his project: a science-fictional jailbreak musical following the theatrical-fictional band Cadaver Police as they become the first international export out of a blockaded country after decades of total embargo.

Inspired by Latvia, Leonie Rae Gasson will present an audio piece, for a blindfolded audience, exploring the fetishization of Europe, the promise and oppression, and the queer lives within it.

Focussing on Ireland’s unique relationship with the UK, and the role the Irish border has played in the current debate, Nic Green will present a performance reimagining the customs of boundaries and lines.

No slipper skipper or gentleman angler, Tam Dean Burn is wading into Scotland and Europe’s fisheries policies with a livebaitperformance. AQUACULTURE FLAGSHIP WRECK tackles new and ancient mariner music, trawls William Blake’s prophetic

European images and casts a net wide across the continental shelf-life of capital’s insatiable appetite for the fruits of the sea.

Dear Europe will be hosted by Gary McNair.
