A night of raw, gig-theatre happenings.
This first, very special Take Me Somewhere Scratch Night has been created to take forward the experimental, beat-driven energy of The Arches, bringing together the best local bands or musicians with contemporary performance makers – two elements that were at the core of former venue’s programme.
Three projects will be performed scratch-style over the course of the evening - each blurring and exploring the connections between contemporary performance and popular music. Afterwards, meet the performers in the bar and feedback your thoughts.
The three performance collaborations are:
ALAN MCKENDRICK with SMACK WIZARDS
Theatre director Alan McKendrick will work with two actors/vocalists and members of Glasgow avant-psych instrumental trio Smack Wizards, to create a performance entitled ‘Cadaver Police In The Electrocution Afterlife’, which will incarnate a temporary band crammed in a taxi after their tour bus has broken down, in a Wilsonian 'knee play'.
TUT VU VU with MORVEN MULGREW
Glasgow based three-piece experimental band Tut Vu Vu (Matthew Black, Jamie Bolland and Raydale Dower) collaborate with London-based sculptor and absurdist costume designer Morven Mulgrew, to create a live performance with sculptural forms and musique concrete, working through Erik Satie’s one act proto-Dadaist play LE PIÈGE DE MÉDUSE (1913).
ULTIMATE DANCER with FRITZ WELCH
Dance artist Ultimate Dancer (a.k.a Louise Ahl) reunites with sculptor and musician Fritz Welch (Asparagus Piss Raindrop / The Final Five / Lambs Gamble) to develop their one hit wonder pop song ‘Banana Freedom’ into a live durational post funk performance, in a re-imagination of a piece originally developed as part of the last Arches LIVE festival in 2014.
