Documentary theatre specialists Rimini Protokoll (Germany) have adapted their acclaimed Cargo project for a very unusual tour around Paisley. You are taken on a journey in a remodelled truck, a mobile auditorium, looking out at the city through a large window.

Next to the driver sits a child, who invites the audience to examine the city and the people in it: laws, rules, norms, rituals, explicit and implicit arrangements, visible and invisible codes – the do’s and don’ts. A soundscape created by a local choir supports and comments on the journey.


A Production of Rimini Apparat

Funded by Renfrewshire Council, this is a Paisley 2021 Legacy co-production with National Theatre of Scotland for the Spree Festival 2018.

The Cargo project is also created in coproduction with HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin), Goethe Institut / Performing Architecture Venedig, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt, PACT Zollverein, Tafelhalle Nürnberg/Bewerbungsbüro Kulturhauptstadt Europas, Internationales Sommerfestival Kampnagel. The production is funded by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe.



DO’S & DON’TS 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.
