Thu 5 - Sat 7 June 2014
Sugar Sheds, Greenock
At the old gateway to Glasgow, now the gateway to The Games, stories flow from the mouth of the Clyde...
White Gold is an ambitious, site-specific performance set in Greenock’s iconic Sugar Sheds. Brought to the warehouse for storing, sifting, refining and presenting, White Gold is woven together from vivid and touching stories gathered across Inverclyde.
As audiences walk through the show, artists, performers and 200 volunteers will bring narratives to life through drama, movement, original music and breathtaking aerial performance. Surprising, poignant and deeply moving, White Gold gives the community of Greenock top billing as the nation’s stars.
An original creation conceived and overseen by Mark Murphy, directed by Simone Jenkinson and Joseph Traynor of Cuerda Producciones, and produced by Iron Oxide. Part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.
