Somewhere New: Avoidable Climbing

Visiting Company

A poetic political black comedy, written and directed by Drew Taylor, about what we could do, what we should do and how burying your face in the latest cat video isn’t enough right now. Part of Take Me Somewhere

Following the performance, a playlet from Fear And Misery of The Third Reich by Bertolt Brecht will be delivered.

The Citizens Theatre is partnering with the festival to give an award to a Scottish artist to present a new piece of work in the venue’s Circle Studio.  True to the Citizens’ ethos, it is hoped that the award will be made to a project which offers a radical and experimental reinterpretation of a classic, celebrated or known text.

Somewhere New is a brand new award for contemporary theatre and performance makers from Take Me Somewhere and the Citizens Theatre. The award provides an opportunity for a Scottish artist to develop and present a new theatre/performance project at the Citizens Theatre as part of the Take Me Somewhere festival. 

Take Me Somewhere is a new festival of contemporary performance taking place in venues across Glasgow in Spring 2017 and builds on the legacy of The Arches venue which closed in 2015.
