I am proud to be one of the performers of my own Songs from the Heart & Elsewhere with Tightlaced Theatre on the 25th & 26th September, as part of Doors Open Day 2010 co-ordinated by the Cockburn Association.
Annie’s Bunnet is my piece to present and others, including musicians, will be bringing a selection of poems from Songs to life for visitors making the most of this weekend’s freedoms. Doors Open Day allows people to explore buildings, and parts of buildings – including backstage at theatres – which are normally closed to the public. The buildings involved are all of some historical / architectural interest.
If you are in the Edinburgh area, you may wish to check out the online brochure for Doors Open at www.cockburnassociation.org.uk. The event, at first captured on one sheet and only occurring on one day, has grown amazingly and now covers a full brochure and a whole weekend – definitely a successful and popular venture!
Speaking of which, Tightlaced Theatre is also going strong and not only presents Songs from the Heart and Elsewhere – a selection this weekend, but also Feline Fables: The Dragon’s Tears Workshop for those interested in seeing a children’s play in development. Feline Fables is a delightful series of story-telling plays created by performer/writer Robert Howat – more at www.tightlacedtheatre.org. When visiting the site, do notice the Tightlaced Theatre Lady – she is also an example of my work.
The venue is gallerA1, an art gallery within the Granton Lighthouse Complex and is a building used by arts companies, including a recording and rehearsal studio, The Depot. Who knows – maybe an audio recording of Songs could be next on the list!
