Tue 16 May – July

First words feed into a production that combines words, music and dance to give expression to Arts in The Age of Anxiety.  The final production will be a film and – whenever it is possible – a live performance.

Meanwhile…This is Stage 1 Words.  Look out for Stages 2 & 3 Music and Dance.  Enjoy!

Arts in the Age of Anxiety Stage 1
Just as Scotland started its post-Christmas lockdown, the Eastgate boldly launched a project with the aim of creating a live performance reflecting lif stages to be performed in the theatre at the end of summer.
Arts in the Age of Anxiety involves a different groups of  writers, dancers and musicians working separately and then together to explore their feelings and responses to the various forms of anxiety that affect life in these extraordinary times.
This film is an insight into the work of Clare Prenton who led a group of 10 writers, to develop their ideas in a series of zoom sessions.

Work will continue through the summer, and culminate in a one-hour LIVE performance on 28 August.

This project is supported by funding from Creative Scotland.
