sonaSònas, the world’s newest and only Gaelic street theatre company, would like to invite you to a short presentation of their work-in-progress, Stàt Neo-eisimileach Sonais / Independent State of Happiness.
The performance will be followed by a discussion with Merchant City Festival, Conflux and others about the role, importance and potential of street theatre in minority/threatened languages.
Following masterclasses with the Natural Theatre Company and a subsequent development period at Trongate, sonaSònas will be merging education and awareness around Gàidhlig through the performance of a number of street theatre pieces on Buchannan Street, 11am – 3pm the following day. With their irreverent entertainment & good humour, they hope to encourage the public to reconsider their view of Gàidhlig, inviting them in to enjoy the language in a more open & interactive way.
About Gaelic Drama at the Tron
The Tron is teaming up with Glasgow Life to develop new Gaelic Drama opportunities for Gaelic speaking playwrights, directors and actors. From November 2012 - June 2013 there will be a series of Gaelic Drama events in the Victorian Bar, all at differing stages of development, offering new experiences for theatre goers. The nature of these events will vary from rehearsed readings to short performances and talks.
All the events will feature new work – and you will be the first see it!
