A National Theatre of Scotland and Arts and Theatres Trust Fife co-production.
Sponsored by ScottishPower and presented as part of Celebrating Fife 2010, with funding support from Fife Council, the Russell Trust and the Scottish Government.
99…100 is a large-scale theatre event that explores and celebrates the stories of Fife. Directed by Simon Sharkey, Associate Director, National Theatre of Scotland, and created with thousands of people from Fife, 99…100 combines music, movement, performance, photography, video, art and design.
Set in the tranquil parkland of Silverburn Park in Leven, Fife, this magical winter event will lead audiences on a journey through Fife’s forgotten stories, true tales and local legends.
The grounds of Silverburn Park will spring to life with interactive installations and the formerly derelict Silverburn House will be transformed with a truly original exhibition. A specially constructed marquee plays host to the performance – an uplifting theatrical production inspired by 99 to 100 stories collected from the people of Fife.
99…100 is the culmination of a nine month community and education project across Fife. Led by a creative team from the National Theatre of Scotland and co-produced with Arts and Theatres Trust Fife, 99…100 is created with thousands of people from Fife including local artists, school and college students, businesses, community members and groups. The 99…100 creative team have embedded themselves in the region, seeking out Fife’s stories through a series of live arts events.
From shopping centres to football matches, from music festivals to beach and forest walks, from haircuts to telephone chats, the team has connected with people in a wide range of locations. The resulting material is presented in a unique and captivating collection of stories, music and images relating to life in Fife.
