Performance

City Vegetables: Malcy Duff (performance)

Live performance by City Vegetables – a new solo project by Edinburgh-based cartoonist Malcy Duff, using unrecyclable packaging, recordings and voice.

The red and blue boxes are singing in the street outside of your house. Sweeping concrete dust skateboarding woods, a rake through the soil of plastic flowers. Some of the above, seagulls always above…talking about the weather on their mobile phones.

Performance

Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects Take the Credits!

Take the Credits! works from the idea that the final moments of a film — where, conventionally, a point of resolution has been reached, music plays and the credits roll — could become a climactic centre piece to a period of experimentation and collaborative making.

We will run short, drop-in workshops producing texts/scripts, images, objects/props and video that will gradually fill the venue with an installation.

Feature

SOUND & VISION: No Brakes, No Gears, No Fear | Margaret Salmon

A speedway film night, including the world premiere screening of Mm, a BFMAF and Northern Film & Media commission commission by Margaret Salmon. Shot with the Berwick Bandits, Berwick-upon-Tweed’s own speedway heroes, Mm commemorates their 50th season and offers an imaginative take on the thrilling wold of this popular motorcycle sport.
