Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre

I’m off to Scotland for a couple of shows at the beginning of November and am very excited to be playing one of them at Sharmanka, which is one of Glasgow’s hidden treasures. It’s a gallery /theatre exhibiting the works of Russian artist Eduard Bersudsky, who moved to Glasgow in the 90’s. Bersudsky’s kinetic art is made from old machine parts, carved wooden figures, animal skulls and other found items and each piece seems alive: when the machines are turned on and a Sharmanka performance begins, you enter a fairytale sci-fi landscape and meet strange creatures. I hope they like my songs!
