A La Buzzcarte: Arches Cafe Bar Takeover

Part of Into The New 2014

Thu 23 - Fri 24 Jan 2014 | 5pm-7pm & 8pm-10pm | FREE

A La Buzzcarte returns with a re-thought, re-vamped and renewed performance restaurant experience! As part of the Arches Café Bar takeover, we will be in residence in the restaurant where as well as the menu of delicious food… you will also be offered a menu of performances made by brilliant and experimental artists. We will be inviting a mix of recent graduates and also current 3rd year CPP students to share a table with you and perform a new piece of work for your delectation!

Artists performing include:

Kim Donohoe
Maria Giergiel
Sarah Short
Daisy Douglas

It could be raw, it could be tender, it could be fulfilling and it could be spicy!

This is a performance event that we at Buzzcut first tested at THAT Festival at the Macrobert Centre in October 2013. We have decided to develop it, alter it, reconfigure it, re-present it for this very special outing at Into The New 2014!

Lots of love, Buzzcut x”

Performances take place in the Arches Cafe Bar & Restaurant at 5pm-7pm and 8pm-10pm.

About Buzzcut_____________

Buzzcut is an artist-led performance festival which takes place across Glasgow in the Spring. Led by Nick Anderson and Rosana Cade (graduates of CPP), Buzzcut is enthusiastic about creating holistic and progressive environments for artists to develop their practice, show their work and discover the accessibility of live-art and performance in Glasgow.

About Into The New_____________

Into The New is a festival of new work from final year students of the BA Contemporary Performance Practice course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Capturing the ethos of the CPP course, which takes as its basis the artist Joseph Beuys’ claim that ‘civilisation is an art work and everybody is an artist’ by encouraging a socially engaged practice, Into The New 2014 offers three days of work designed to intrigue, challenge, entertain, excite and provoke, created by a group of artists trying to make sense of the complexities of our world by making performance to share with others. Tackling subjects such as masculinity, depression and environmentalism, the work at this year’s festival asks us to consider – what makes us human? What connects us? What divides us? Most of all, it asks us to imagine what a better world might look like, and how we can all use our imagination to find creative solutions to the crises our planet faces.

If we are all ‘artists’, we are all part of finding those solutions – please come down, enjoy the work, and join the artists in the bar afterwards to discuss all this and more…
