Our Arts Manager of the past 10 years – Jackie Shearer took her final bow from Platform on Friday 1 April.
This September Platform is delighted to welcome Fuora Dance Project back to the venue. The company are looking to work with a group of local grandparents and their grandchildren.
They would like to work with anyone interested for two days later this month. Here to explain more is Ashley from the company:
“We are holding a taster session on Monday 25th and if you come along and enjoy yourselves why not join us for Tuesday and Wednesday too to create a short dance piece for family and friends.”
Monday 25th September: 1-3pm (Taster Session)
Tuesday 26th September: 4-6pm
Wednesday 27th: 4-6pm
Where: Platform, The Bridge, 1000 Westerhouse Road, Glasgow, G34 9JW
Movement, sound, colours and textures are going to be the main themes of the workshops. All delivered in a playful atmosphere, through a series of tasks and
experiments, which Giulia (Artistic Director) will guide you through. Starting with a general warm-up, we will explore creative tasks in order to create a
short dance piece with an original soundtrack composed by our musician Ross.
Our show, W-Hat About? is aimed at children 6+ and families and is a wonderful story of two young Italian sisters who go on a journey to visit their
grandfather, a hat maker who lives in a cottage in the Scottish countryside.
Using dance, music and the spoken word, much humour and many adventures, the value of grandparents is highlighted and the special relationships between
generations and contrast in Italian and Scottish cultures too.
