National Theatre of Scotland and Scottish dance collective Project X and Thulani Rachia present Chronicles, a new alternative audio guide performance project.
The young people of Edinburgh, along with performance artist Thulani Rachia, have devised a new piece of dance theatre. An alternative audio guide and immersive performance using different dance styles, as the audience promenade through the Scottish Galleries of the National Museum of Scotland to uncover hidden and imagined histories.
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.
Project X celebrates and champions dance and performance within the African Caribbean Diaspora in Scotland. Through workshops, performances, artistic opportunities, discussions, screenings, a symposium and more, Project X platforms these contemporary and traditional dance forms whilst broadening perceptions and representation.
