Blow Off

AJ Taudevin
 
An explosive new piece of guerilla-gig-theatre from Julia Taudevin (‘one of the most exciting forces in Scottish theatre’ Scotsman). With music by Kim Moore and Susan Bear and Julie Eisenstein from Glasgow's hottest indie-pop duo Tuff Love, this fierce and playful feminist work explores the psychology of extremism with haunting melodies and progressive punk riffs.

It is about a woman.

I’m not going to tell you her hair colour.
Her skin colour.
Whether she's got an almond or a heart shaped face.
All you need to know, right now, is that she is a person.
Walking up a street. A street that you know. A street we all know.
Towards a giant, glistening tower.
A giant, glistening shaft.
A shaft that you know.
A shaft we all know.

Some Other Mother

AJ Taudevin
 

High up in a Glasgow tower block, ten-year-old Star and her mother await the outcome of their claim for asylum. As Mama’s mind fragments under the pressure of their unknown future, Star constructs a poetic and fantastical world of her own.

Some Other Mother is a story of loss and survival, which explores the traumatising impact of the asylum system, regardless of the outcome.
