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.
