The goldfish can’t see the water in the bowl.
Add dye to that water and everything becomes clear…
Dye in the Goldfish Bowl was a piece influenced by the world inhabited by the young theatre makers who formed the first National Ensemble. In a seemingly ordinary warehouse, a group of strangers are assembled and detained; do they remain united in the dividing force of authority?
The company of 23 young people aged 16-25 were selected from over 140 applicants. They met on a monthly basis to work with skilled practitioners, exploring a range of theatre practice including movement, dance, writing and directing.
The performance took place at a small warehouse in Glasgow, kindly donated by Simon Community Scotland.
“Because of the huge differences in opportunities within local authority areas,we all have such different learning and experiences and so the thoughts and contributions and processes of each member is totally unique. this makes collaborating incredibly exciting because you never know what someone is going to come up with next!Grace Green, Ensemble Member
