“An opportunity to let your imagination run riot” – Member of The Flames
Founded in 2016 in Glasgow as part of Luminate 2016, The Flames is a performance company for people age 50+ who wish to create high quality, collaborative work.
The Flames work at pace exploring ideas and devising in partnership with Tricky Hat’s artists. The work is created in just five sessions before being performed in front of an audience. Previous events have been inspired by themes such as love, memory and obsession. The company uses performance, film and specially composed music to explore stories about life after fifty, challenging our perceptions of ageing.
The Flames will return in 2018, recruitment dates and details to be announced. The Flames is a growing community of creative people. Watch our short film for more information about what’s involved.
Previous events have taken place at the CCA on 4 Oct 2017, as part of Luminate 2017, 19 April 2017 and 26 October 2016, as part of Luminate 2016.
