The Arches presents

Behaviour 2012

Sat 3 Mar - Sun 29 Apr 2012 | Festival pass: £39/£29 (book below or call 0141 565 1000)

We are thrilled to welcome back the Arches’ Behaviour festival: eight weeks of essential live performance. Each event has been carefully selected to represent the absolute forefront of arts practice today. Taken cumulatively, the programme provides a snap shot of the most exciting international artists, presented alongside their Scottish counterparts.

This year sees a dramatic expansion of the festival, venturing out of the cavernous depths of the building and across Glasgow. Our off site strand can be found on the streets, in parks, shops and museums. We hope that this will provide interventions in the everyday, allowing us to think of our city and of cities across the world in new, surprising ways.

As ever we have taken advantage of the unique scale of our building and the contrasting spaces within it. You’ll find the intimate and the immense, from whispered installations to riotous dance…

Jackie Wylie, Arches Artistic Director
