1,210km

Award winning young performance companies, Junction 25 from Glasgow and Theater an der Parkaue from Berlin have joined forces for the first time to create a new show, 1,210km.

1,210km

About 1,210km

The work, which will premiere at Tramway in Glasgow before transferring to Berlin, explores ideas of cross-cultural identity, connection and belonging as they ask the question ‘what is the space between us?’.

The Glasgow performances, on 10 and 11 August, are taking place as part of Festival 2018, the dynamic cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

Junction 25 is an awarding-winning theatre company made of young people aged 11-18 based at Tramway, the leading international art space.

Theater an der Parkaue, Young State Theatre of Berlin is a repertory theatre for children and young people. It is subsidised by the federal state Berlin, making it the largest state theatre for young audiences in Germany

To create the show the companies are engaged in a creative and cultural exchange. They are collaborating over a number of months through the use of digital technology. They will only meet twice in the run up to the show opening. The first time was for an intensive development weekend in February, and they will next come together in person for the final production week in August.

1,210km is directed by Sarah Kramer, Rosie Reid and Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir.

Co-director Director Rosie Reid was a member of Junction 25 from 2006 to 2010. Rosie returned to the company as a director in 2017, having directed and delivered on projects with a number of companies including; Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Vox Liminis, Firefly Arts, Youth Theatre Arts Scotland, Fish and Game, Janice Parker Projects, A Moment’s Peace and Terra Incognita.

Co-director Director Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir was on secondment with Junction 25 from 2014-2015 and returned to the company as a director in 2016. Gudrun has directed and delivered projects with a number of companies including; Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glas(s) Performance, Platform, 21Common, Glasgow School of Art and National Theatre of Scotland.

Junction 25 is co-produced by Glas(s) Performance and Tramway, and 1,210 km is supported by Festival 2018 and The Goethe-Institut.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 1,210km are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
