Tramway unveils January to March 2018 programme

Tramway presents work from acclaimed Scottish and International artists in their new season alongside a range of performance and participation events!

Tramway unveils January to March 2018 programme

Highlights include Love (20 January - 25 March, Tramway 5) an exhibition of twelve large scale multi-media collages made between 1988 and 1991 by Steven Campbell, one of Glasgow’s most celebrated artists. These collages represent a little known experimental area of Campbell’s practice which also includes clay, plaster, papier mache sculpture, drawing, printmaking and textile design.

Curious Seed and Tramway present Teenage Trilogy (9 February – 11 February) exploring the heady and challenging time of transition that we all go through. Teenage Trilogy is captivating dance theatre in three dynamic parts: live performance and music, interactive installation and silent disco. Bring your friends, bring your family, but most of all bring your (inner) teenager.

At a special screening Sacred Paws perform their soundtrack to Margaret Salmon’s latest film Mm, which was commissioned for Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival. The screening is part of a survey of works (16 February -18 March, Tramway 2) by acclaimed Glasgow-based artist and filmmaker Margaret Salmon on the occasion of Glasgow Film Festival 2018. The exhibition is co-produced by Tramway and LUX Scotland in partnership with Glasgow Film Festival.

Destinations 2018 is a vibrant showcase of the best youth dance companies from across Scotland. Offering a diverse line-up of performances, the evening will also include the premiere of the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland’s new piece for 2018 choreographed by YDance Artistic Director, Anna Kenrick.

The Nelken Line is coming to Tramway! (13 January) A celebration of iconic choreographer Pina Bausch, the Nelken Line, which has spread across the world like a global ‘Mexican wave’ of dance, is probably the best known dance element in all of Pina’s works. Just a few distinct gestures, the sequence tells the story of the four seasons, with dancers proceeding in a long line. This event is part of Glasgow’s Nelken Line which is led by Intergenerational Dance Party and supported by The Work Room.

Work inspired in part by Charlie Chaplin’s political comedy Modern Times, Amanda Ross-Ho’s installation UNTITLED PERIOD PIECE takes the form of a factory floor dedicated to the production of oversized garments. Ross-Ho’s surreal, theatrical environment subverts notions of time, labour and economy (until 4 February, Tramway 5). Installation commissioned by Bonner Kunstverein, Germany and Vleeshall, Middleburg.

Younger audiences will be enthralled by the always popular Tramway Family Day (4 March), and for pre-school children Abhinaya Dance Academy will lead several sessions for Tramweans focussed on Indian Dance (from 22 January), followed by five movement sessions led by artist Ruth Barker (from 26 February).

There are further film screenings of work by Lawrence Lek, whose work featured in our Glasgow International group show in 2016, and from Martine Syms, whose new feature-length film is a powerful exploration of the underlying oppressive racial structures, and their origins, in the United States.
