ON THE RADICAL ROAD: ENACTING HAMISH HENDERSON
Tradfest @ Summerhall - Anatomy Lecture Theatre
A radical theatrical fusion enacting the poems and songs of Hamish Henderson; a visual, choral and dramatic movement, lyrical and declamatory, personal and political. The piece visits Highland, Lowland and industrial landscapes, theatres of war in the Desert Campaign, the invasion and liberation of Sicily and Italy, and the consequent struggles for a new self-knowledge and cultural alignment in modern-day Scotland and Europe. A fresh and vital perspective on who we are, where we came from and how we might move forward.
