Tom at the Farm

Faslane

Faslane

✭✭✭✭✩ Therapeutic:
Jenna Watt’s affecting exploration of Trident in Faslane may never go nuclear, but her sympathetic approach to a complex issue restores some much-needed humanity to an increasingly polarised body politic.

Macbeth: Without Words.

Macbeth: Without Words.

★★★☆☆ Bold:
Fresh and experimental, the Ludens Ensemble’s reimagining of the Scottish play is an Expressionist fantasia of sound, projection and movement.
