Scottish dance collective Project X (UK) and Thulani Rachia (UK/South Africa) present Chronicles. Working with young people from Edinburgh, they have co-created a new piece of dance theatre performance. This alternative audio guide and immersive performance uncovers hidden and (re)imagined histories as the audience promenade through the Scottish Galleries of the National Museum of Scotland.

Supported by National Museums Scotland.


Chronicles is part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018. A major radical new festival of international performing arts, created by young people working alongside renowned Scottish, British and international theatre practitioners.

Ten companies and artists specialising in daring new work will embed themselves in ten communities around the country, working with local groups of young people to co-create, design, develop and stage a piece of performance. Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in September and October 2018.
