Scottish Youth Theatre
Phone Call to the World: Live Performances
Thu 4 November — Sat 13 November 2021
How to make a Bee Bar
Phone Call to the World is one of 17 global projects commissioned by the British Council that explores climate change and environmental crises through art, science and digital technology.
Groups of young people from three continents are engaging with climate change issues that impact them at a local level, coming together to consider the wider global climate challenge. Using the simple holding framework of Phone Call to the World, young people from Scotland, South Africa, Occupied Palestinian Territory, India and England are creating digital performance work that will inform, question, confront and make demands of its multiple audiences to make a difference to one of the most pressing issues of our time.
These experimental feature evenings collate 5 of Scotland’s young, emerging performance-makers whose practice is rooted in social, cultural and environmental consciousness. The in-person performances will themselves cross multiple artforms, encompassing live music, comedy, spoken word and interpretive dance, as innovative intersections of the live and the digital. As a series of developmental sharings – responding to the exhibition space and the moment of COP26 – the solo artists explore the multiple impacts of the climate crisis on identity, expectation, loss and futurehood that younger generations are and will experience in Scotland and across the world in the wake of global climate change.
Each evening will host two performances by a solo artist, at 19:30 and 20:30. These will take place as follows:
Thu 04 November – Amnesty by Jack MacGregor
Fri 05 November – Cyclosphere by Rumaisa Zubairi
Sat 06 November – Voices of a Dying Earth by Conall Ross
Fri 12 November – Bone as Soft, skin as concrete by Catriona Robertson
Sat 13 November – Words on World's Ending by Joe Hunter
