The first performances of our Festival 2014 event On Common Ground took place on Friday and Saturday this week, and the reviews have appeared in the press this morning.
Herald review 4*: “At times visually stunning, it was also incredibly moving as a huge sense of pride in our city emanated from the local cast”
The Scotsman review 4*: [Janis] Hart’s design and Karen MacIver’s soudtrack come together to support performances which ring with pride and passion. It reminds us that what matters at least as much as hearing the stories of other is having the opportunity to tell your own.”
We've also been asking On Common Ground audiences what they thought about the show, and have had some brilliant comments from them too.
"a wonderful performance, inspired production and great focus from superb cast"
"An amazing amount of work obviously went into the show and the live music was great"
There are performances on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. The tickets have all been allocated, however we will run a returns queue each night to re-allocate any tickets that haven't been collected. You'll be able to add your name to the list for returns from 6pm each night, with uncollected tickets reallocated from 7.15pm. While you wait, there are films to enjoy in the auditorium, as well as arts and crafts from Debajehmujig's home on Manitoulin Island in the foyer.
If you attended On Common Ground, and want to let us know what you thought of the show, you can complete a survey online Surveys completed by Fri 22 August with contact details submitted will be entered into a free prize draw for a £50 Buchanan Galleries gift card.
