24th - 25th November 2017
This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
A unique night-time experience exploring the dark themes behind our beloved childhood stories, Nursery Crymes takes to the streets of Glasgow this November.
Wrap up warm for an outdoor journey through Mother Goose's forest and beyond, winding round the streets of the city centre as you encounter installations, performances, sound works, projections, film and some twisted versions of well-known fairytale characters. Mischief La-Bas, aided and abetted by artists of all disciplines, explores the sinister side of nursery rhymes – the ideas of authority, morality and social indoctrination underpinning these simple stories for children. If the message is sung so sweetly, do we even notice the crime? Do we ever learn to question these early life lessons?
Audiences meet at Avant Garde on King Street, to start their journey.
Entrance times are staggered: 6.00pm, 6.20pm, 6.40pm, 7.00pm, 7.40pm, 8.00pm, 8.20pm, 8.40pm. The whole experience lasts for an hour and a half (approx). Ages 14+.
