Allotment - an arts bar where live performance, new art and music fuse unconventionally for one-off events.
The final Allotment offers an alternative night out by embracing cyberspace and the phenomena of social networking. An artistic take on websites including Facebook, MySpace and My Single Friend, Allotment brings virtual networking experiences to life.
Through live music, art and performance, the final Allotment experience enables punters to reclaim the art of conversation, make new friends and take part in some dating games. As the night unfolds, three secret locations will also be brought in to the mix.
For May 2010’s Allotment, the National Theatre of Scotland put out an open call to artists to submit ideas and over 20 artists are now on board to create work for the final event. These artists work across a multitude of disciplines including theatre, dance, sound installation, electronic media, film producing, VJing, performance poetry, sculpture, visual art and environmental art. Allotment will provide a platform for the artists to showcase a wide range of work.
