Would you like to help be an inspiration for The River, an official Festival 2014 event being produced by Barrowland Ballet? 

Natasha Gilmore, Artistic Director and Candice Edmunds, Associate Artist are looking for people to share their stories as an inspiration and starting point for this large-scale, site-specific dance production set on the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow and the Thames in London.

Do you, or any of your friends have experiences to share about arriving in Scotland from the Commonwealth or other countries?

Or perhaps you’ve had to say goodbye to someone leaving for the Commonwealth?

Maybe parents or grandparents arriving in Scotland from the Commonwealth or other countries has affected your experiences of life in Scotland?

We would like to talk to you and hear your stories to help inspire The River.  We are meeting with people on Thursday 21 November between 12-6:30pm at the Briggait, G1 5HZ in central Glasgow.  If you are interested in meeting us and sharing your experiences please email belinda@barrowlandballet.wpcomstaging.com to arrange a suitable time.  If you are unable to come on this day and would like to share your story please feel free to email me the details or arrange a phone call.

Two free tickets will be arranged for everyone interviewed for the Glasgow performances on either Sunday 20 July at 12:30pm or 6pm or Monday 21 July at 12:30pm or 6pm
