INTERNATIONAL PERFORMING COMPANY: MEET THE DREAMERS
‘AN IDEA PLANTED ITSELF. THE IDEA GREW ROOTS AND SPROUTED. IT GREW BIGGER AND BIGGER.’
90 young people from across the Commonwealth have travelled to Glasgow to form The Tin Forest International Performing Company and bring The Tin Forest and the banks of the River Clyde to life.
You have a really good idea? But how do you make that idea a reality? The Dreamers tackle making the impossible possible and transforming fantastical ideas into ones grounded in the everyday. They embark on a journey inspired by the greatest minds before them. Mackintosh, Einstein, Alexander Fleming and William Dockwra’s big ideas drive forward the actualisation of The Dreamer’s own inventions.
They grapple with self doubt and indecision. ‘Maybe? No? Actually, yes. Why don’t we? No.’ The little pieces that go together to form a bigger idea don’t seem to fit together just yet. It’s up to The Dreamers to find a way to fill the gaps and put the fragments together to create something beautiful and unique.
They start with a sense of Determination, as they see the Possibilities of their idea. However, the potential of the idea is out of reach and they are knocked back by Frustration. Only when they begin to look at things from a different angle do they reach a moment of Realisation and then EUREKA!
The magic has happened.
The Dreamers inhabit a world buzzing with creativity and possibility.
Soon something starts to take shape. ‘From little things, big things grow.’
You can see all the groups perform together outside The South Rotunda on Wednesday 23rd July 2.30pm.
All International Performing Company Events are free and unticketed.
