This year at Surge, you can build a nest, watch live digital sculpting and fill marbles with inspiration, while bonkers cabaret acts vie for your attention in a Covid-secure festival space in Barrowland Park, Glasgow.
SURGE is Scotland’s annual festival of street arts, physical theatre and circus. Delivered in partnership with Merchant City Festival, SURGE fills the streets and spaces of Glasgow with exciting new Scottish work and cutting edge international performance, every July. Alongside a packed programme of shows and street encounters, we also run SURGE masterclasses and workshops, for everyone from members of the public to professional performers. Previous SURGE programmes have included work from Cantabile 2, pvi collective, Angela De Castro, and Eric Davis (Red Bastard). As part of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme, SURGE produced Perch, a cross-continental Carnival with spectacular performances on the rooftops of Glasgow and Campinas (Brazil).
Merchant Voices is a community choir based in the City Halls in Glasgow's Merchant City, they are currently hosting weekly online rehearsals and would love you to join them!
