Transform Fife: You tell us what was, we tell you what is
Transform Fife will takeover the historic Pilmuir Works in the centre of Dunfermline, Scotland’s ancient capital, and allow the pupils of Woodmill High School an opportunity to stage a piece of theatre which they feel reflects their lives in the town now.
The show clears a space for the teenage company to express their hopes and fears, their interpretations of the present and the future, all staged in an abandoned building which is an enduring symbol of the industrial and social forces which shaped the lives of the generations who lived in the town before them. For the duration of the show the group will take over the space and make it their own.
The Transform Fife creative team of co directors Ben Harrison and Jemima Levick with National Theatre of Scotland Associate Molly Taylor will be using texts from former factory workers, fused with texts written by the pupils – about themselves, their parents and their future – to create a multi-platform spectacle which will include dance, a heavy metal band, solo and group singing as well as a multimedia installation.
