Welcome back for another fun-filled, drama-packed, multi-media year of Firefly workshops, productions, school and community arts projects.
Our first production of the year is Humming. Originally created by young production company, Filament, for the Chrysalis Theatre festival, Humming has been reworked for a home show on 29th January, followed by a series of performances and workshops at Fife College, Platform Glasgow and Armadale Academy.
We’re also delighted to announce that Firefly has been selected for the National Theatre of Scotland’s 2016 Exchange programme, which brings together theatre-makers from Scotland, the USA and New Zealand to create work to perform at Stirling’s Macrobert Arts Centre in July. This promises to be a great adventure for our new company of ten Firefliers, who are working on this project under the expert guidance of Kirsty Byers and Eleanor Morrison.
Following the triumph of their production of Macbeth at the Shakespeare Schools Festival, the Firefly team are happy to be back working with students at Pinewood school.This time on a film project. We’re also looking forward to the last of our current A Word in Your Ear projects which involve young artists, writers, musicians and performers from across West Lothian. Watch this space for news of the Word In Your Ear Gatherin’ from 22nd to 28th February, which will bring together artwork, recordings, new writing, film and performance from this fabulous project.
Finally, don’t forget our weekly theatre, film and drama workshops that take place at Howden Park Centre, The Regal Bathgate and Linlithgow Burgh Halls throughout the term.
